Program Description

Since 1984, the Comparative Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe (WGSE) program has offered students a unique opportunity to explore feminist theory in practice across Europe. The program examines the trends and dynamics of European social, economic, and political systems as they influence contemporary gender theory, policy, and women’s identities. Following an orientation to the program, students participate in NOISE, a two-week summer school in WGS co-organized by Utrecht University and ATHENA, the European Network of Women’s Studies. 

Courses Offered

Situated Feminisms: Socio-Political Systems and Women's Lives AWS 240 (4 semester credits):
This course examines the historical emergence and contemporary conditions of feminist movements in the Europe. While women's movements have flourished all over the world, they have evolved through the particular conditions and contexts in which the various groups of women find themselves. We must be attentive to the situated nature of women's experiences, both in the nature of their aspirations and oppressions, but also through their experiences of race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender identity, age, etc.

Issues in Feminist Methodologies AWS 250 (4 semester credits):
This course is devoted to questions of theory and practice of feminist research in the social sciences and the humanities. We will consider the following: What is the relationship between methodology and knowledge claims in feminist research? How do language and narrative shape experience? How do the practices of interpretation intersect with questions of the authority of the researching subject and her respondents? How is the traditional social science relationship between the researcher and the examined object (e.g., the texts of oral histories, photographs, paintings, sincere data, etc.) redefined within frameworks of feminist research? How are feminist study methods impacting traditional constructions of arts and sciences? Through discussion workshops and individual research projects, students will evaluate research approaches that reflect the feminist goal of equalizing poser relations between researcher and respondent. Participants will also consider action-based research as a site for activist coalitions.

Comparative Feminist Theories AWS 350 (4 semester credits):
This course frames several of the central debates in continental feminist theory in the context of emerging local and global pressures on women's movements. Exploring subjectivity, interpersonal relations, and community as mobile sites of knowledge and power formations, students will become conversant with contemporary feminist theory as we consider affinities and divergences among different theory models. Students will evaluate frameworks for political intervention, questioning the ability to transfer feminist concepts across cultures and languages.

Independent Field Research AWS 396 (4 semester credits):
The program is structured to offer students the opportunity to conduct on-site academic research, generating a comparative analysis within the contemporary European social, political, and economic framework. Students will select a topic of interest that can be explored in the context of the program, develop and execute research method(s), and present their work in both written and oral forms.
