Description

This course will examine gender-based violence from a sociological and feminist perspective. How does our society define violence? What are the social and political dynamics that allow gender-based violence to occur? How do we respond to victims? How should we? What forms of resistance to gender-based violence have developed over time? What claims do those movements make and why? We will pay particular attention to power relations in this course – around gender, race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, disability, gender presentation, and nationality – asking how social inequalities shape risks for and responses to intimate violence. This course looks primarily at the U.S. context. Throughout the course, we will also analyze collective resistance to violence, including social movements and campus activism. We will use diverse types of texts, including ethnography, memoir, and television/film. Topics will include intimate partner violence, sexual assault and rape, social movements against violence, gaslighting, sexual harassment, and violence against LGBQ+ and trans people.
