WGSST 8800.01 - Subjectivity Theory: Feminist, Psychoanalytic and Spatial Processes of Identification
Professor Mary Thomas
Tu 2:15pm - 5:00pm
Class number 29370
The term `subjectivity' relates to the processes through which a person comes to think of the self through social terms and spaces. In this course, we will explore feminist, psychoanalytic, and geographic understandings of subjectivity and consider how subjects take up social identities as aspects of the self. Identity is more than a description of who a subject is; rather, identification is a social, psychic, and spatial process. After successfully taking this course, students will be able to do the following: define subjectivity through multiple feminist perspectives; understand psychoanalytic structures of the subject, especially Freudian and relational ones; articulate the centrality of spatial context and contingency for embodied processes of identification; and integrate these lessons into research agenda.

WGSST 8800.02 - Operationalizing Intersectionality
Professor Wendy Smooth
Mo 2:15pm - 5:00pm
Class number 29371
In this course, we will focus on the challenges and importance of taking into account the principles of intersectionality in the design, analysis, and theoretical framing of our research. In addition, we will engage the complexity of intersectionality as a theoretical construct, a research paradigm, a method and an analytical tool with an eye to what it means to "use" or "deploy" intersectionality in our research.
