The Gender, Race, and Nation minor introduces students to a range of feminist scholarship on the intersection of gender with the concepts of race/ethnicity and nation. Courses examine race/ethnicity in contexts that are local, transnational, or both, and analyze the ways in which gender, race, and nation are constituted with and against each other. Students examine how these constructions operate in discourses, institutions, politics, societies, and individual lives, past and present. The minor can be tailored toward an international or domestic emphasis, but topics are likely to include the changing boundaries of race, gender, and nation; differential relations among nations; histories of imperialism, colonialism, and globalization; and postcolonial resistance and theory.
The Gender, Race, and Nation minor requires students to take five courses totalling at least 15 credits. Students are encouraged to consult with a department advisor for additional information.
See below for courses that count for the minor (Gender, Race, & Nation minor courses are in the orange column)
