          studies.    The    course   examines   the
          distinguishing   qualities   of   feminist
          methodologies   in  the  social  sciences,
          humanities,   and   natural  sciences.  By

          acquaint    themselves   with   both   the
          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.

          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD
          GEP:Meets  WI and SS.  GFR:Meets SS.  This
          course  will  explore  connections between
          science   and   gender   by   turning  our
          attention  to two interrelated themes. One
          focus  will be on  questions of how gender
          shapes the practice of science--whether or
          not    women    and   men   'do'   science
          differently.  The  other focus  will be on
          how   sex,   gender,   and  sexuality  are
          constructed  by  the  natural  and  social
          sciences- how have the sciences understood
          and  analyzed sex,  gender, and sexuality?
          Throughout  the  course,  science  will be
          explored as activity and knowledge that is
          grounded    in   social   and   historical
          contexts.  Prerequisite:  GWST 100,  a 100
          level social or natural science course, or
          permission of the instructor.

GWST 680  Theories of Feminism                                    3 credits

          Grade Method: REG/P-F 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.
