New Class for Fall 2013: WMST V3137: Feminist Sexual Politics in Historical Perspective

September 4, 2013 - 4:10pm - 6:00pm
754 Schermerhorn Extension

How have feminist attitudes towards sex changed over time, and how did attitudes vary amongst feminists themselves? And what are the legacies of  past feminist sexual politics for the present day?

A new course this Fall at the Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality will address these questions by exploring the history of feminist sexual politics in Europe between the years 1789 and 1918.  WMST V3137 Feminist Sexual Politics in Historical Perspective will be taught by Professor Kirsten Leng.  

More information, including time and location, is available on our Fall 2013 Courses page.
