          practical  details and  the ethical issues
          involved.   The  course  gives  particular
          attention  to the  interdisciplinary focus
          of  feminist research as well as questions
          of what distinguishes women's studies from
          other  disciplines; how  feminist research
          and   community/political   activism   are
          related; how feminist research is changing
          the   traditional   disciplines   and  the
          methods   used  in  research;  and  future
          directions     of     feminist    methods.

          364- No one is indifferent to Jane Austen.
          A  crucial  figure  in the  history of the
          novel  and  a  powerful figure  in English
          literary   history  generally,  Austen  is
          venerated   or   despised   with  peculiar
          intensity  - for being a brilliant stylist
          or  a  provincial  bore, an  instrument of
          commonplace   repression   or   of  ironic
          subversion.  We will test  these and other
          views   by   studying   Austen's   fiction
          (Northanger  Abbey, Sense and Sensibility,
          Pride  and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma
          and Persuasion) within the sociohistorical
          context  of the Romantic  era, and reading
          her work alongside other novels written by
          women  writers  in  this  period including
          Frances  Burney, Ann  Radcliffe, and Maria
          Edgeworth.    Instructor:  Orianne  Smith,

GWST 680  Theories of Feminism                                    3 credits

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          examines contemporary feminist theories of
          women's  oppression  and  liberation.  The
          class  will read major  works of twentieth
          century feminine thinkers, and analyze the
          theoretical  perspectives  they represent,
          and    discuss   the   commonalities   and
          differences  between  them. The  issues we
          will  examine from  a feminine perspective
          will include gender, experience, identity,
          difference,      equality,      sexuality,
          mothering, wage work, racism, imperialism,
          language  and  representation.  Throughout
          the   course,   we   will   consider   the
          historical,   social,   intellectual,  and
          political   contexts  within  which  these
          theories    developed,    including    the
          relationship  of  feminist theory  and the
          contemporary women's movements. The course
          will  also  examine key  differences among
          women   based  upon  race,  class,  sexual
          orientation,    culture,    religion   and
          nationality,  as  well  as  strategies for
          effectively negotiating those differences.

          Prerequisite:   GWST100,  GWST/AMST310  or
