Announcing the Fall term 2015 Gender, Race and Nations Course Offering: Constructions of Power and Knowledge GRN 515

This inter-disciplinary graduate seminar seeks to identify and critically analyze how the concepts of gender, race, culture, class, sexuality and nation are invested with power, forms of inequality and creative potential.  We will examine the politics of the production of knowledge by focusing on the post-colonical theories of relationships between the colonized, colonizer, and the exotic.  We bring this theorizing into conversation with contemporary thinking aruond intersecting identities, systems of opression and modes of resistance.
