Gender Equality and Social Justice (GEND) - Introduction to Gender, Power & Justice

GEND 1006  Introduction to Gender, Power & Justice


GEND 1025


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




What is power and how does it connect with issues of social justice and equality? Do gender, race, sexuality, class, disability, and historical legacies such as colonization and slavery still impact the quality of our lives today? Why is it so hard to see the operations of power in our everyday lives or within democratic societies? Can understanding power inform our strategies for social justice and change? What can we learn from past social justice movements? This course introduces students to the foundations of thinking critically about power as it relates to Gender Equality and Social Justice in our individual, local, and global worlds.
