WGST 812 02 January 2016


Beginning with a focus on Indigenous cultures in local, regional and international contexts, this course examines potentials for and challenges to achieving gender justice across borders and within communities. Centered on women?s contextual relationships with the land, each other, the nation state, identity systems and other resources, the course provides a spotlight on world views that emerge at sites of resistance to colonialisms/imperialisms and racialization processes. Emphasizing women?s self-determination in social movements ranging from the interpersonal to the international, this class will introduce students to intersecting gendered struggles involving: environmental sustainability, food and water sovereignty, the feminization of poverty and migration, women in politics, anti-militarization and conflict resolution, reproductive, labour, human and children?s rights.


Students must be enrolled in the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
