Expanded Course Description
This course examines the foundational and aspirational trajectory of Native feminist scholarship. We will begin by questioning the usefulness of gender as a category of analysis within Native communities and how Native women have responded to feminism. We will trace the intellectual origins of Native feminisms, each week reading a key text in recent publication. With an emphasis on the praxis of Native feminism, we will cover a range of indigenous contexts, but focus primarily on the Americas and the Indigenous Pacific. Topics explored include cultural revitalization and gender roles, change and continuity under cycles of colonialism and settler-colonialism, the connection between colonialism and sexual violence in Native communities, debates over citizenship and sovereignty, and contemporary Native gender roles and identities.
