Gender, Globalization & Empire

Facilitators:
Naomi Andrews History Department
Sharmila Lodhia Womens and Gender Studies Program



Pathway Description:
The Gender, Globalization and Empire Pathway provides students with an opportunity to examine the production of raced and gendered subjects through a series of interdisciplinary courses linking ideas about gender to imperial pasts, postcolonial theories, social and political constructions of citizenship, diverse religious movements and the intricacies of globalization. Courses associated with the Gender, Globalization and Empire Pathway highlight the need to historicize and contextualize individuals experiences within relevant categories of race, sex, class, culture and nation. Issues students will likely encounter in these courses include, but are not limited to: orientalism, modernity, hegemony, nationalism, militarism, fundamentalism and the gendered division of labor.
