Description

This course aims to address the gaps and misconceptions that often exist between feminism as an academic discourse and feminism in practice. Through classroom engagement and community involvement, students will explore the intersection of academia and activism as it pertains to working to improve the lives of women and their communities. Students will learn nonprofit management basics, think critically about community engagement, and explore the applicability of feminist practice to each. WGS 350 students commit to volunteering in an area community based organization, as well as to active participation in the classroom. Students will have the opportunity to dialogue with nonprofit organization founders and leaders from diverse backgrounds and learn about nonprofit management and community engagement from a variety of perspectives. Through readings, written assignments, classroom participation, and service experiences, this course endeavors to nurture and facilitate: critical thinking about community service, non-profit organizations, feminisms, and their relationships to social change; consideration of how feminist thought can be applied to work in communities and how communities can inform feminist thought; and the development of skills for working effectively within community based organizations and with communities around issues that affect women’s lives.
