WS 296M - Topic: Deviant Women
This course counts as a 3 credit major elective for ANT/SOC majors.

Course Description: Throughout the ages women have been assigned the role of "Other." This course looks closely at the ways through which this "otherness" has been constructed and institutionalized. It explores some of the methods used to marginalize and control women, and examines how patriarchies have socially, politically, culturally, and economically attacked those who rebelled against their own marginalization and oppression. It looks at the treatment of witches, feminist radicals, scientists, intellectuals, and women in the arts. This course is where students examine through history, art, literature, film and sociology the lives women who have challenged and helped destabilize male hegemony. This course is especially recommended for Sociology/Anthropology and Women's & Gender studies majors. It is restricted from online registration.
