The Advanced Feminist Discussion Group is a weekly class designed to give participants a chance to dive deeper into their understanding of intersectional feminist theories, histories, and ideas.

I have been an English professor for 10+ years, which involves teaching through a feminist lens. My terminal degree, an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, focused on feminist narratives. In addition, my undergraduate degree in English with a minor in History prepared me for a career as a feminist educator. At the collegiate level, I teach education majors how to address diversity issues in their classroom in a class called Teaching Diversity Through Young Adult Literature. My essays on feminism and pop culture have been published by Jezebel, Everyday Feminism, Role Reboot, and Salon. I have also been teaching feminism courses on Outschool since early 2020.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will discuss the topics listed in the course description in an age-appropriate way. When issues of sexuality, violence, or consent are discussed, the discussion will remain general, rather than specific, to avoid going beyond a "PG-13" level. Students will be expected to abide by Outschool's learner policies.
