WGST-224-01 Labor, Sexuality, Globalization
Spring for 2016-2017
This course explores the juncture of sexual politics, patriarchy, national "development," and the "postcolonial" global structure by looking at representations on, around, and of women's labor, sexuality, and bodies. When and how do these women become "workers"? How do "we" imagine and represent female sexualities and bodies in the contexts of national developments and policy-making procedures? How do these women negotiate their own agency from the positionality of the "subaltern"? We will study literary texts, fact-finding documents, and theoretical investigations on the issues of gender, labor, and sexuality.
