* ENGL 5343 Studies in Critical Theory : Transnational Feminisms
Dr. Kanika Batra
Wednesday 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon
Chandra Mohanty’s conceptualization of feminism without borders is premised on intersections between women’s movements, activism, and analysis on a global scale. As a method of enquiry encompassing biological, kinship, and work-related categories that span cultures and continents -- women as unwaged, white, blue, or pink collar workers performing corporate, academic, manual, domestic, or sexual labor -- transnational feminist studies has emerged as an important branch of globalization theory. Following Nancy Fraser, we can identify struggles for recognition of new identity categories and redistribution of economic, social, and political power as the major strands in transnational feminist analysis. ‘Redistribution’ and ‘recognition’ are keywords in the feminist philosophical, anthropological, and historical accounts we will read in this course. Some of the issues the course will address are: emergence of new categories of work such as ‘higglers’ and ‘migrant sex workers’ in the Caribbean; transnationalization of labor practices such as those in the export processing zones all over the world; women’s responses to their changing public and private roles including an increase in domestic and social violence; new forms of affective intimacy in late capitalism including the adoption of a global vocabulary of identity politics such as ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’ or ‘queer’ in places which prohibit expression of erotic autonomy outside the heterosexual matrix. While we will examine these issues in a transnational framework, the course includes a special focus on the political, social, and cultural economies of the global South as manifested in gender studies scholarship and curricula in the Euro-American academy.
Note: This course will satisfy requirements in the Comparative Literature division and may be used for the Nonfiction genre requirement.
