Credits: 3

In the early 2000s, some people believed we had already arrived in a "postfeminist" era. Rather than move beyond feminism, over the past two decades, feminism has become increasingly popularized. We now live in a world where feminist slogans emblazon overpriced t-shirts and global corporations sponsor advertising campaigns promoting girls' and women's empowerment. During this time, networked feminism has also changed both who and how people engage in feminist activism. Feminism may now be mainstream, but why did it become increasingly visible during this period and at what cost? More importantly, how has feminism become entangled with neoliberalism? This course examines post, popular, and networked feminisms in the twenty-first century. Students will read articles and books by scholars such as Angela McRobbie, Nancy Fraser, David Harvey, Rosalind Gill, Sarah Banet-Weiser, Safiya Noble, and Jessica Ringrose. Students will also engage in a semester-long research project on one contemporary feminist event, movement, or phenomenon. NOTE: This course is open to Juniors and Seniors majoring in Culture and Media only. Students who register for the UG section will earn undergraduate credit at the completion of the course. Students wishing to earn Graduate credit must register for the graduate section of the course. Students intending to apply a graduate course toward the senior capstone requirement must register for the graduate section. [Tracks C, M]
