GENDER & WOMEN’S STUDIES
The Department has an immediate opening for a reader for the following course for Fall Semester 2015:
GENDER AND CAPITALISM
Instructor: Leslie Salzinger <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Wednesdays 2-5/210 Wheeler
Capitalism and gender both structure and enable daily life, and both are so pervasive as to become invisible. In this course, we will work to bring them into view, to explore their multiple points of connection, mutual reinforcement, and contradiction, and to make space to imagine more just ways of being. We will open the term reading theories of capitalism and social reproduction, and then move to explore capitalism’s empirical entanglement with gendered meanings and practices, both historically and in a variety of contemporary arenas (e.g. domestic labor, sex work, emotional labor, finance).
Please contact the instructor directly if you are interested in being a Reader for this course.
