AMST 3814: Women, Rage, and Politics

3 CreditsRace, Power, and Justice in the United StatesSocial Sciences

This course explores the relationship between women, rage, and politics. Following bell hooks, we ask where is the rage? Doing so, invites us to interrogate how rage is gendered, how politics are gendered, and how do rage and gender intersect to mobilize for justice. Drawing on political organizing by women of color during the recent Black Lives Matter uprising, we consider what it means to make and claim space as women of color in politics. We also look at how rage - BIPOC women's rage, white rage, rage against women - gets mobilized to cement and/or combat racism, xenophobia, and misogyny. Finally, the course reframes women's rage as intrepid and redemptive, capable of sparking change during this political movement.
