Gender Studies | Seminar in Gender Studies: Gender & World Politics
G498 | 13267 | Williams, K

This course will explore from a transnational feminist cultural
studies perspective the ways in which assumptions about and fears of
gender, race, and sexual orientation are exploited and manipulated
by a variety of constituencies to create and sustain  nationalist
narratives and foreign policy agendas in the age of the "war on
terror." We will also consider the ways in which feminist activists
around the world have responded to the use of gendered  bodies in
nationalist projects.
