CORE 002 SC - Communities and Faultlines: Militarism and Building Anti-Racist Feminist and Queer Solidarities
In this course, we will examine the ways in which notions and practices of "community" are shaped by the politics of exclusion and inclusion. In particular, we will focus on ways in which dominant practices of community building and engagement might reproduce exclusionary logics tied to capitalism and militarism through specific gendered, sexualized, racialized, classed and nationalist norms of kinship and family. Anti-racist, queer and feminist resistance and revisioning of these norms will be emphasized. Themes for exploration will include prison abolitionism, academia, transnational feminist praxis and the security state.
