Additional Details:

Although the notions of equality and self-determination are critical to Democracy as an ideal. Gendered and racialized subordination and marginalization all too often mark democratic politics. In this course, students will explore the following questions: what are feminist and critical race critiques of theories and practices of democracy? How have feminists and critical race theorists from various contexts across the globe analyzed issues central to democracy such as citizenship, representation, and participation? What are models of a more egalitarian democracy and how might they be fostered? Throughout the course, we will examine the interplay of race, gender, class, sexuality, and nationality in relation to these questions.
