- Art History, Theory & Criticism
This course will introduce students to the history, development, and practices of diverse forms of conservative and religious feminisms in the United States. Utilizing a broad-range of texts -including films, photographs, and archival materials- students will engage with the question of what it means to be a "Right Wing Woman" in the current political environment, as well ask how conservative religious and political practices have historically intersected with feminism in America. From radical evangelical egalitarianism in the 18th century to the cult of domesticity in the 19th century to the creation of Concerned Women for America and the Family Research Council in the 1970s and 1980s, students will explore a broad range of discourses through primary such as Church documents, newspaper archives, and blogs.
