Feminist Classes to Shop This Week

Posted -

Shopping Week is here, and there are so, so, so many classes to choose from. Of all the feminist classes I've taken or shopped over the years, these are the 4 that are running this semester that I highly recommend.  


1. How Sweet is it to be Loved By You: Black Love and the Emotional Politics of Respect by Professor Morgan and Professor Kincaid

(Audrey took this class her Freshman Fall)

This dual professed class was one of the most rewarding classes I have taken in my time at Harvard. If you want to learn a brief history of Black Love in an interdisciplinary, conversation-based class, then you simply have to take it.

2. Leaning In, Hooking Up: Visions of Feminism and Femininity in the 21st Century by Professor Thompson

(Audrey took this course her Sophomore Fall)

This lecture is the most comprehensive class on feminist theory I’ve found on campus. It has turned me, a loyal seminar-taker, into a student who can appreciate the power of a student-involved lecture.

3. Feminist Political Philosophy by Professor Schouten

Professor Schouten asks us to take on a semester of questioning our own beliefs about what feminism can, should, and does mean. Did I mention that it counts for the Ethical Reasoning requirement?

4. Men to Boys: Masculinities in Postwar Hollywood Film by Professor Bronski

How does feminism affect men? As it turns out, a lot. Watch films from post-WWII America to modern day, alongside readings in psychology, sociology, feminist theory, film theory, and film criticism.
