Program Description:


Gender, Race, and Class in London will provide students with an opportunity to explore one of Europe's most exciting cities with an eye to issues of social justice within popular culture.

Areas of Study

The first class, "Gender and Race in Pop Culture in London," WGSS 313, will teach students transnational, queer, and critical race feminist analysis of critical global issues through pop culture--British TV, movies, sports, theatre, street art, pub culture, afternoon tea, and pop music. This course meets the baccalaureate core requirement in Contemporary Global Issues. To read the syllabus for this course, click here.

The second course, "Race and Gender at the Museum," WGSS 312,  meets the baccalaureate core Western Culture requirement. In this course, students will turn transnational, queer, and critical race feminist lenses on a number of London's many outstanding museums--The British Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Tate Modern, the Museum of London Docklands, the Science Museum, the British Library, the Royal Museums Greenwich, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Design Museum, and the Imperial War Museum. To read the syllabus for this course, click here.

The courses make the most of its setting, and so class time is mostly spent in London. Students engage in social media assignments that allow them to share what they are learning through photo essays, blog posts, and TED-style video talks. Courses can be used for bacc core, upper division electives, or major/minor requirements for WGSS.
Students can register for between one to nine credits with up to three credits as independent study.


This program is open to all majors. 

Physical requirements include extensive walking in the city of London.
