AME 304W - Girls on Fire: Feminism, Activism, and the Future

3 CR

In fiction as well as real life-from Katniss Everdeen to Malala Yousafzai-girls shape their worlds and define our futures. This course explores YA Dystopia, feminism and activism, and social media. We consider how these contexts shape girls’ lives in contemporary American culture, make sense of the lives of girls who built feminist foundations, and imagine the future we all share. (This course is cross listed with WGS 304W .)

Prerequisite(s): ENG 101  and WGS 101W  or AME 201W  or permission of instructor.
