GRSJ 300: Intersectional Approaches to Thinking Gender

GRSJ 300: Intersectional Approaches to Thinking Gender

Section 901
Term 1

Dr. Alifa Bandali

This course opens up, and continues conversations on why and how feminist, anti-racist, (dis)ability and critical theories have been mobilized to make visible the invisible. Namely, how power operates to marginalize and oppress folks. Namely, we will use and draw on the critical tool(s) of intersectionality to understand how gender overlaps with interdependent systems of discrimination, persecution, and subjugation—as well as resilience and resistance. Drawing upon a range of texts which includes popular culture and everyday life, as well as a selection of interdisciplinary readings, this course offers an overview of some of the impacts and legacies of historical and contemporary issues of gender as an issue of social justice.
