Latina Feminism(s)

Vanessa Rosa

Mount Holyoke College
Shattuck Hall 319
In this seminar, we will explore the relationship between Latina feminist theory and knowledge production. We will examine topics related to positionality, inequality, the body, reproductive justice, representation, and community. Our approach in this class will employ an intersectional approach to feminist theory that understands the interconnectedness between multiple forms of oppression, including race, class, sexuality, and ability. Our goal is to develop a robust understanding of how Latina feminist methodologies and epistemologies can be tools for social change.

Course limited to sophomores, juniors and seniors; Prereq: 8 credits in Latina/o Studies, Gender Studies, or Critical Social Thought.

Permission is required for interchange registration during the add/drop period only.
