Description

Class Experience

Students will understand the basics of feminist theory and be able to apply those to the pop culture texts of their choice. 
I have been an English professor for 10 years and have taught on diversity and feminist theory in numerous classes. On Outschool, I teach courses on Feminism & pop culture. My writing about feminist issues has been published by Jezebel.com, Everyday Feminism, Role Reboot, The Shriver Report, Salon.com, and more. 
2-3 short writing assignments spread out over the course of the class + 1 option to write a 3-4 page paper on feminist theory at the end of the course. 1 weekly reading assignment. 
These readings will be online, free, and available to access for all students. 
Students who submit a paper at the end of the course will receive individualized written feedback. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I teach from an intersectional feminist perspective, which means that I view gender as just ONE aspect of the world where equality has not yet been attained. We may address additional areas of social injustice, including racism, classism, ableism, and more. I also teach from a non-binary perspective. Although I periodically use gendered language including "boys" and "girls," I also use language like "all genders" and avoid promoting a gender binary. Transgender and non-binary children should feel welcome in this course, and we will do our best to use gender-inclusive language.
