Women’s Legacy: The New School

Spring 2018

Taught By: Walker, Gina

Section: A

CRN: 6924

Credits: 3

Women’s Legacy at The New School extends the contemporary global project of feminist discovery and recovery of historical women to the understudied female intellectuals, academics, performers, artists, activists, and others who contributed to the founding and evolution of the University and its programs. Our emphasis will be on project-based inquiry, supervised primary research, and production of original "female biographies" that more accurately establish women's historical legacy. In preparation for the 100th anniversary of the school's founding in 2019, students will disseminate their new findings through print, social, and digital media, and a curated space on the New School History Website. Distinguished Guest Faculty from around the University will offer lectures on specific disciplines, individuals, and historical contexts. This is part of an ongoing effort to reclaim and celebrate the university’s women.
