This interdisciplinary seminar uses feminist and critical scholarship from many disciplines to examine how ways of knowing (epistemology), ways of being (a person's identity and locations), power relations within and between countries, and different historical contexts impact the production, understanding, and circulation of knowledge. Course is designed to allow each student to develop a logical and feasible research question; improve their skills in reading, understanding, and evaluating existing research; and develop a research paper based on secondary sources. Open only to sophomores, juniors and seniors. No first year students. One course.
