CS 301-‐02, Spring 2013, Fridays 9:00-‐11:45am Main Campus Room (MCR) Instructor: Thea Quiray Tagle, firstname.lastname@example.org Office Hours: F 12:00-‐1:00PM, or by appointment
How has the concept of the “domestic” been deployed in colonial and modern nation-‐state building projects? How has the protection of the “home” justified acts of violence upon individual and collective bodies in both the First World and in the Global South? Finally, how have those injured bodies resisted through various means including, but not limited to, their participation in social movements and the creation of cultural productions? Over the course of the semester, we will examine these questions through the lens of critical race, postcolonial, queer, and feminist of color theories. Exploring thematics ranging from immigrant women’s labor to the legality of sex work will help us to trouble the divide between the public and private spheres, and to expand our imaginaries of home to include queered forms of kinship, culture, and alternative modes of life. Course Objectives and Learning Outcomes 1. Students will understand the development and transformation of the concepts of “home” and the “domestic” in the 20th and 21st century United States, and the ways these discourses developed alongside US projects of war, conquest, and economic domination. 2. Students will become conversant in key debates over domesticity in the fields of Gender and Sexuality Studies, Cultural Studies, Urban Studies and Ethnic Studies. 3. Students will gain both specific and broad knowledge about state-‐sponsored enactments of individual and collective violence against women and people of color, to expand their understanding of “domestic violence” in both the public and private sphere. 4. Students will consider a variety of historical, cultural and ideological perspectives on how to address domestic violence, and will develop a final seminar paper in relation to this. 5. Students will learn how to conduct primary and secondary research, using a variety of sources. 6. Students will apply a variety of critical methods to the interpretation of popular cultural productions in course assignments.
