Intersectional Theory and Applications in Human-Centered Work

In this DRG, we will investigate intersectional feminist theory and have conversations about how we can apply the theoretical principles to our everyday life in research and practice. We will meet on Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in Sieg 128.

We are looking for up to eight students to sign up for 2-credits. Given the nature of the work we are discussing, we are looking for students who will contribute to our discussion about identity topics such as gender, race, disability, sexuality and class with a respectful attitude towards difference.

If you are interested in participating please fill out this google Form by March 15 with a brief 100-word statement outlining why this DRG interests you and what perspectives and experiences you would bring to the course.
