Institution: Pitzer

Description: An Introduction to the history and contemporary reality of Central American Feminisms. This class is rooted in the understanding that there are multiple theories of feminism and will examine gender as an integral component of local, national and trasnational spheres. Exploring the historical and political contexts in which distinct feminisms develop, the class will allow students to engage with critical relevant questions in modern day social movements. For example students will explore the tensions between Marxist movements and Feminism, working and middle class feminisms, first and developing world feminisms, and development of a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex movement in Central America. Students will also examine lived experiences and organizing strategies through the feminist method of oral history gathering.
