HIST 212 - The Emergence of the Modern Woman (TR)

A comparative and cross-cultural approach to modern women’s history, from the Enlightenment to the present. The course considers common elements of women’s experience in modern history, including changes in fertility and sexuality, increasing educational attainment, transformations in economic roles, and new access to political power. Students explore the importance of women’s own agency, or resistance to oppression, in bringing about and exploiting these changes; and they assess the diversity of women’s identities as conditioned, for example, by class, race, or ethnicity. The course emphasizes the particular history of different nations or regions depending on the instructor, but it always involves students learning to work within a comparative framework. (TR)
