H318: That Flawless Formation: Intersectional Feminism in Modern Culture in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 30, 2016)
“That Flawless Formation” is a multifaceted lecture and discussion examining the complicated intersections of race, gender, sexual orientation, and inequality through the lens of today’s popular culture and points of conversation. This course aims to explore the meaning of intersectionality in regards to feminism and equality as a whole, with respect to current events. We'll be exploring the definition and central ideas behind intersectional feminism through the lenses of Beyoncé (if the title didn't already give that away!) as well as other news and culture events ranging from #BlackLivesMatter to Caitlyn Jenner.
