Chicana Feminism: Theories and Praxis

This course introduces the student to the rich field of Chicana feminist thought by examining its emergence from social movements; its diversification and alliance with third world and transnational feminisms; its theoretical developments in scholarship and the arts; and its movement into contemporary social, artistic, and political spaces. We will privilege the approach of thinking about Chicana feminist thought and praxis as movida or movement to consider how feminism, in general, and Chicana feminism, in particular, has and continues to inform our conceptualizations of power, gender, sexuality, identity, and society. (Not offered 2023-24).
