Feminist Courses at Concordia....

Ever look at the number of feminist courses at a University? At Concordia University in Montreal, they not only have an entire College dedicated to Women's studies, but just about every department has feminist courses.

The Simone de Beauvoir Institute lists a total of 13 main courses. Here is a partial list:

Women of Colour
Feminism, Race & Racism
Boys, Dudes & Men: Feminist Perspectives
Queer Feminism
Feminist Ethics
Marxism and Feminism

Ugh! But, if you start to go to other departments like History and Political Science, you'll find other feminist courses. So, in Political Science they offer:

Women and Politics in Canada
Women, Ethics and the Law In Canada

And, if you take a Master's degree in Political Science you can take:

Feminist Critiques of Public Policy
Gender and International Politics

Then, if you go to the History Department, you'll find the following:

Women in Western History I: In Her Own Voice
Gender and Sexuality in South Asia
Gender, Sexuality, and Empire: The View from the Modern Middle East

You can go to the Classics Department and you'll find:

Representations of Women in Ancient Greece and Rome

And, if you go to Communications, you'll find:

Media and Gender
Communications Technoloty and Gender

Is there a department at Concordia that does NOT have feminist courses? Are there ANY courses at Concordia that looks at Men???

If there was one for men, would anybody care?

All of these things seem like relevant courses; if you want to see the courses for men, just take the ones that aren't for women. :D

The other course you refer to teach about men but not to the exclusion of women.

I find it offensive to divide subject matter based on gender, race or sexual orientation. That line of thinking fosters bigotry and does nothing but create division between us. The preferences of the individual or the gender should not matter one bit when serious learning is considered.
