Abstract: For many students, studying southern women’s history is both a personal and an intellectual encounter. This course moves chronologically from colonial settlement to the present. In each era, the intersection of race and gender has produced unique challenges, actions, reactions, and opportunities for women. Reading material will reflect a variety of voices and genres, including memoirs, analytical monographs, position papers, autobiographies, a novel, and film. This course places particular emphasis on the agency of African American women in claiming racial justice. Feminist and womanist movements have traditionally depended on cooperative rather than competitive work. Thus one of the graded projects for this class will involve group research and presentation. This course has been approved for the Gender Studies and Sexuality (formerly Women’s Studies) minor, the African-American Studies minor. It fulfills the Unite States category of the History major and minor.
