Course Detail
Course Components:
This course builds upon the material in La Chicana (ETHNC 3860) by exploring the theoretical contributions of contemporary Chicana scholars and applying these theories to works within anthropology, sociology, history, and cultural studies. We will study the writings of Chela Sandoval, Sonia Saldivar-Hull, Emma Perez, Gloria Anzaldua and other leading Chicana theorists to better understand a third space feminism that transcends national borders and ethnic identities. Some of the topics/concepts we will cover include colonization, diasporic subjectivities, (de)colonization methodologies, consciousness, and borderlands.
