    21st Century Feminisms: ARSC300 (Issues in Global Studies)
    Oct. 22nd, 12:30 PM to 1:20 PM
    ROOM CHANGE 103 Gore Hall

    Fall 2018 Lecture Series

    As part of the 2017-2018 Women’s March activities, people around the world participated in powerful non-violent action to bring attention to long-standing and continuous oppressions based in gender, sexual identity, race, and class inequalities. This lecture series addresses key debates within and about feminism as well as the history and practice of feminism, drawing from examples such as voting and reproductive rights for women, civil rights activism, the Stonewall riots, and ‘women in development.’ The objectives are to bring clarity to thinking about feminism and cultivate an open and inclusive set of ideas about how to address structural oppressions and inequalities in the world.

    This lecture series is offered by the Center for Global and Area Studies. It may be taken as a one-credit Pass/Fail course: ARSC300 Issues in Global Studies. The course is open to all students and is a core course for the minor in Global Studies. Please direct your inquiries to Prof. Lindsay Naylor (lnaylor@udel.edu)
