Women's Studies and Board of Faculty of Behavioural & Social Sciences, the Punjab Act has, in anticipation of the approval of the other relevant bodies, approved the Syllabi & Courses of Reading to introduce Women's Studies as an elective subject in B.A. w.e.f. Academic Session in the EEkson and the eight stages ot- life File Size: 1MB. Course Description. Introduction to Women's Studies draws on feminist ideas and scholarship in developing historical, theoretical and cross-cultural frameworks for the comparative study of women and gender. Questions addressed include: What does it mean to study "women" as a group? When is it useful to focus on commonalities among women, when is it necessary to stress differences?

Women’s Studies is devoted to the academic study of the roles, contributions and scholarship of women. As such, this course serves as an introduction to the discipline of women’s studies using multicultural sources based on feminist scholarship, research and theory. In this course, we will examine the diversity of women’s experiences. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

Women's studies is an academic field that draws on feminist and interdisciplinary methods in order to place women’s lives and experiences at the center of study, while examining social and cultural constructs of gender; systems of privilege and oppression; and the relationships between power and gender as they intersect with other identities and social locations such as race, sexual. This introductory women's studies reader offers a wide range of classic, conceptual, and experiential writings--over selections in all. Chapter introductions provide background information on each chapter's topic, including explanations of key concepts and ideas and references to the subsequent reading selections. The anthology also offers numerous pedagogical features designed to engage 5/5(1).
