WGS 380 - The Politics of Difference


Politics of Difference explores some of the consequences of using gender, race, nationality, class, religion, and sexuality to shape identity and culture. The course will examine how discourses of identity and difference are used to both justify inequalities and to enable solidarity. In the seminar we will look at a range of strategies that are employed in response to difference including attempts at managing, disciplining, or cleansing difference as well as efforts at redefining, reclaiming, and recreating the meanings of difference.
