This class will engage the histories of women of different races, classes, and sexual identities in order to try to understand the contradictory and uneven changes that have led us to where we are today. We will explore a variety of topics including colonialism, indigeneity, labor, sexuality, motherhood, and construction of gender roles. Throughout, we will be tracing the ways gender and race hierarchies intertwine with sexual regimes to form a society with shared, though contested, rules and understandings.
