Feminism across the Disciplines.
A course taught at St. Augustine's College uses "A Voice from the South" (1893) by Anna J. Cooper (a collection of essays representing women as being bold, in-charge decision makers) as an example of how "Feminism across the Disciplines" is expressed. These essays, as well as works of a number of other writers, can be used in developing interdisciplinary writing assignments. Opportunities for vocabulary building, comparing a 19th century man's curriculum with a 19th century woman's curriculum, and comparing Cooper's ideas with those of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in an excerpt from "The Communist Manifesto" are all examples of interdisciplinary assignments which enable students to more openly participate in a liberal arts education.
