WMS 320 Course Description and Syllabus Now Available
With the semester less than a week away, it’s time for me to finalize my syllabi and get moving with things. The course description and syllabus for WMS 320: Feminist Thought Into Action are now available. Since I am requiring students in this course to participate and comment on the blog, I imagine that most of the activity here will be related to this course. In addition to undertaking a semester long research project, students will also be using social media to put the “action” into feminist thought. I’m excited to see what my students find and how they relate this aspect of the course with their research projects.
Students in WMS 320 also have the unique opportunity to register for an additional credit by participating in the Radcliffe Institute for Advance Study’s “Women Making Democracy” conference on March 30 at Harvard University. Political Science and Gender and Women’s Studies students from a number of classes at URI will be traveling to Cambridge to participate events. The Gender and Women’s Studies Program is also in the process of contacting conference speakers about a suggested reading list for students. Once classes begin and the conference nears, I will be posting more details.
