Women's Sudies Course: The Fruit of The Struggle

Spring 2017; WS 505.05; T/R 9:40-11:00am

Jane Stapleton, Affiliate Faculty, Women's Studies Program - Inspired by UNH’s Sesquicentennial Celebration, this course will engage students in an honest and empowering examination of diversity challenges on a number of axes faced at UNH over the course of its 150 years. We will begin by exploring women’s changing roles at UNH throughout time and how they correspond with changes in the larger culture. This analysis will extend to a diversity of identities at UNH, including race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, class and sexual orientation.  Through studied exploration of important work in the area of diversity, the class will produce an archival record for public display.  This display will concretely demonstrate the innovative strategies tested in our long history of hardship and hope at UNH.  The course will bring into specific relief the ways a land-grant university can transform the region and beyond by the work we do on campus and the people that we help to shape. (Fulfills Discovery Historical Perspectives and Inquiry requirements.)
