GEND-1006-FA001: Introduction to Gender, Power & Justice

We invite community members to join our Community Engagement Courses. As you immerse yourself in the course content of your choosing, you will have the opportunity to connect with both the course instructor and Nipissing students. There is no requirement to submit coursework, nor will you receive a grade for participating in the course. What is power and how does it connect with issues of social justice and equality? Do gender, race, sexuality, class, disability, and historical legacies such as colonization and slavery still impact the quality of our lives today? Why is it so hard to see the operations of power in our everyday lives or within democratic societies? Can understanding power inform our strategies for social justice and change? What can we learn from past social justice movements? This course introduces students to the foundations of thinking critically about power as it relates to Gender Equality and Social Justice in our individual, local, and global worlds.
