Events Details

This course seeks to explore the history of women in East Asia through a historical survey incorporating past and contemporary interpretations and critiques of gender theories that have been articulated. It will examine the definitions of gender and feminism within East Asian patriarchal societies and look at how women negotiated social, political, economic and legal boundaries to create a space and place for themselves within their world. Traditional paradigms and moments of historical change will be explored as well to extrapolate the changing roles and expectations of women in East Asia, especially against the background of globalization.
