New Graduate Course: GNSS 2000 - Method, Evidence, Critique: Gender and Sexuality Studies across the Disciplines

Meets Tuesdays, 4:00-6:30 PM
Pembroke Hall 206
Instructor: Denise Davis

Gender and Sexuality Studies is by its very nature transdisciplinary. Can we speak of a single methodology that ties GNSS together? How might scholars work on gender and/or sexuality while respecting disciplinary boundaries and training? We will start with the premise that studies in gender and sexuality are tied together by critique that questions foundational assumptions and takes account of its own position within a given field of knowledge. By studying canonical theoretical texts alongside disciplinary studies characterized by a feminist and/or queer focus, we will investigate how critique operates and how standards of evidence are marshaled in particular disciplines.
