Freshman Seminar: Feminism and Other Life Skills

Lauren Kroiz,

Friday | 1:00 - 2:00pm

What does it mean to be a feminist now? What is feminism’s lineage? What does feminism look like? How can feminism teach us now? This course is designed to give students an introduction to key texts in feminist theory with an emphasis on their deployment in the visual arts. In addition to reading and discussing these texts, students will be required to undertake feminist experiments in their daily lives. Assessment will be based on journal exercises. Although the class is not limited to those identifying as women, major emphasis will be placed on implementing feminist strategies while identifying as female.
