GWST 375 - European Women’s History 1750-Present

(3.00)
Examination of women in European society from the mid-eighteenth century to the present. The course emphasizes women’s life experiences within the context of larger historical changes in Europe (including the economy, cultural life, and social movements). Thus, a major goal of the course is to present women’s history both as an integral part of European social and cultural history and as a unique subject of historical investigation. Students will learn to think critically about historical arguments and to understand both the difference that gender makes in history and the differences among women’s historical experiences. The course will examine how diversity of class, race and nation shaped women’s lives by focusing on white aristocratic, middle-class and working- class women, as well as colonized and women of color. Recommended preparation: Any 100-level social science course, 100-level literature course.
