Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • articulate orally and in writing an understanding of the social history of women’s participation in Christian movements as well as their resistance to patriarchal Christian traditions
  • articulate orally and in writing the relationship between religious claims to authority and the social and cultural construction of gender roles
  • use critical methods in the study of women (including questions about representation vs reality in male-authored texts and the role of historical context) to investigate questions about gender
  • use skills methods to conduct historical research on women and gender
  • articulate orally and in writing arguments about women and gender in history that are supported with evidence from historical sources

Students: on the first day of class, we will discuss what you want to learn and post your objectives here, too.
