ALS 290 Women, Race, and the Law: An Introduction
This course uses written text and cinematic text to explore the legal conditions of gender and women in diverse contemporary transnational contexts. More specifically the course addresses how laws map out gender, women's rights and social and ideological symbols. The course emphasizes the ways in which legal definitions and representations of women have been understood in terms of race, religion, occupation and constitutional rights. Coursework and class discussions will be grounded in feminist and cultural theories and critical legal studies. (LA)
