It will cover early writings from Black women up through the decades of women’s rights, abolitionism, civil rights, Black liberation and feminist struggles.  Similarly, the course will trace the emergence of queer theory, searching for its historical roots and studying its contemporary expression. Final research projects will focus on the diverse forms Black and queer feminists are using to express and communicate their theories today. Staff
