Feminist StudiesFMST 209 Comparative Empires: Gender, Slavery, Race

Explores the interrelated, epistemological frameworks of race, slavery and gender across multiple Oceanic and imperial networks. Histories of empire and slavery have been over-determinedly tethered to singular histories of nation-states, temporalities and/or geopolitics. Bypassing the idea of slavery and/or empire as a stable or temporal concept, students are guided instead by an interdisciplinary and comparative framework, seeking more the robust vernaculars and geo-histories that found our current understandings of face, gender and sexuality.
