Class Experience

Students will learn a few basics about Diversity & Inclusion, and apply those to the TV series Our Flag Means Death. 
I have been teaching on Outschool since January 2020. My primary topic is feminism, feminist history, and feminist pop culture analysis. I have been an English professor for more than a decade and have extensive practice leading feminism-related discussions in person and online. My graduate degree is in Creative Nonfiction, and I studied feminist narratives extensively as part of my MFA. I have published numerous essays about feminism, including for publications like Salon, Jezebel, Everyday Feminism, The Shriver Report, and more. I believe in intersectional feminism, which explores the intersections of gender and other forms of oppression, including racism, ableism, classism, and homophobia, among other issues. I am trans-inclusive, non-binary affirming, and aspire to be anti-racist in my teaching.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In the US, Our Flag Means Death is rated MA. In Australia, it is rated for ages 15+. In Canada, it is rated 13+. 

The show does include violence, profanity, references to sex, some moderate gore, and some nudity. The class will NOT include these things, although we may discuss the impact of these elements of the show. 

Because of this range in these age recommendations, I am listing this class for ages 14-18. Participants should have parental approval to watch Our Flag Means Death and participate in the class. 
We will take a look at fan art and some social media posts from the creators of the show. I will not be linking to anything in the classroom.
