Global South Feminisms


This course delves into the heroic histories of some of the most prominent women voices across the Global South and the various ways they challenge normalized and heteronormative structures of society. From slave revolt leaders Carlota in Cuba and Solitude in Guadeloupe, to the seminal Borderlands=La Frontera and contemporary film Mariannes Noires, we will explore and discuss some of the most daring accounts of women engaging with power from emancipation in the 19th century to the 1960s civil rights movements to the #MeToo era.
