Samanta, Suchitra
Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, v25 n2-3 p94-110 2015
In this article, Suchitra Samanta reports on an introductory course in women's and gender studies (IWGS) where she first introduces, centers, and problematizes the concept of gender and sexuality to undergraduate students, and at a depth not offered in other disciplines. This article suggests a need for greater visibility for Asians and Asian Americans in IWGS courses, in choice of text, and in effective pedagogy.
