WGS-4004-001 Cultural Studies & Feminism: Thinking Through the Museum   Winter 2020 | Dr. Angela Failler | Tuesdays, 2:30-5:15pm Museums are sites of representation, meaning making, and knowledge production. As trusted institutions, they have the power to legitimatize particular stories about people, places, events, and things. They contribute to public dialogue on culture, society, history, and collective memory. Arguably, they also serve a pedagogical role. What, then, can we learn from museums? How might museums help us think through the pressing dilemmas of our time? Drawing on critical museology, cultural studies and intersectional feminism, this seminar course explores contemporary issues of local and global consequence including debates surrounding conceptions of sex, gender, race, nation, citizenship, sovereignty, and belonging as they appear (or disappear) in the museum. Special attention is paid to how museums become sites of activism and protest when movements such as Idle No More, Black Lives Matter, and #MeToo raise questions about their relevance and/or potential role in decolonization, reconciliation, and other calls for social justice. Requisite courses: WGS-2333/WGS-3301 and WGS-3302 or permission of the instructor or Department Chair This course will be cross-listed with GENG-7112/3 Topics in Cultural Theory: Thinking Through the Museum For further information, prerequisite waiver, or to be signed in to the course, please contact: Dr. Failler, a.failler@uwinnipeg.ca
