Woman as Witch (1) Witchcraft persecutions have resulted in death for thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands, over the course of centuries. This course seeks explanations for the witch craze, focusing primarily on the gendered nature of rhetoric employed to persecute suspected witchcraft, with special attention to Malleus Maleficarum (often translated The Hammer of Witches), a fifteenth century treatise encouraging violent extermination of witches. Through a mix of historical and theoretical analysis, students come to understand how and why this rhetoric lingers in the consciousness of the West into our current age. Meets with WGSS-696 003.

Women in the Wilderness (1) This course explores the notion of wilderness as gendered. In the Western world, wilderness is variously construed as pure and unspoiled, the antithesis of culture, a threatening "other" to be tamed. In fictional and non-fictional accounts, encounter with wilderness is framed in and through white, ableist, male-embodied masculinity. Students examine alternate narratives, both contemporary and historical, that reconceptualize wilderness, challenge dualistic, gendered accounts of "the wild," and/or imagine the outdoors as a retreat open to non-normative or hegemonically masculine bodies and persons.
