As a capstone writing class, this course integrates students’ previous coursework in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Students in this course write a scholarly, rigorous research paper over the course of the semester that details the current state of feminist scholarship on a current feminist issue of particular interest to them. In addition to writing their own papers, students work collaboratively to provide draft feedback, suggestions, and encouragement to one another during the semester. Several students have generously agreed to share their fantastic final papers, on a wide variety of feminist topics here.
