description of course: A six-credit social action research course focused on race, gender, sexuality, and Indigenous futures, the Feminist University Seminar offers students the opportunity to develop skills in social action research, team building, project development, and research dissemination. Students will work closely with community and/or university organizations and with faculty engaged in interdisciplinary research from the Faculty of Fine Arts and in the Faculty of Arts and Science. Students will have the option to participate as subjects in the research as well as to lead certain dimensions of the research and research dissemination. The goal is not only to develop five stand-alone research projects but to study how a course such as ‘The Feminist University Seminar’ might inspire change in institutions of higher education.
