“The past is not dead; it is not even the past,” William Faulkner wrote. With this as a starting point we will explore the relationship between past and present, between history and memory. How are we to know the past, and what are we to know about the past?  We will consider the ways in which collective memory and individual memory inform our sense of the past, and we will look at the ways in which monuments, memorials, commemorations, museums, and popular culture help create both our national and individual past and present. Particular attention will be given to such diverse events as the Civil War, the creation of the Lower East Side, the Holocaust, the Vietnam War, and 9/11.

 WGS 300.35    Becoming Equal:  Women in Public Policy Since the 1960s      Prof. Chesler

Section 900        T 4:10-6:40  
Code#3123        35 West 67th Street    (Allow for travel time)     

Since the 1960s, profound shifts in the economy have propelled American women into the workforce.  A powerful second wave of women’s rights advocates also drove important changes in cultural norms.  But whatever the larger trends at play, gains for women that we often take for granted today would not have happened without the full force of laws that prevent sex discrimination in education, employment, healthcare, and basic obligations of citizenship. This seminar will place a gender lens on public policy and examine the major innovations through which American women in the course of two generations have secured critical rights and opportunities. It will present case studies of landmark legislative and judicial victories in the recent history of U.S. women’s rights that have contributed to overall social and economic well-being, and it will feature guest conversations with some of the pioneering advocates who made these gains possible.  Students will be required to present papers or prepare sophisticated audio-visual presentations that address still unresolved matters of inequality for women.
