EGST 0218 - Latina Feminism

Credits: 3

Focus on Latina writers’ discourse about their experiences at the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, and sexuality. The study of Latina feminist thought will be grounded in sociopolitical and historical contexts within the United States. We will explore the foundational and classic writings of Latina authors such as Gloria Anzaldúa, Cherríe Moraga, and Ana Castillo among others, to understand how Latinas have developed a racialized, working-class, inclusive feminism in the United States. This course will incorporate Latina literature, personal essays, feminist theory, historical and philosophical scholarship, and film.
