Instructor: Isabel Gonzales

From bedroom to boardroom, from classrooms to war zones, from prisons to factories, from sports arenas to newsrooms, from city streets to Wall Street, between international borders and across the global assembly line, how do certain institutions, spaces, subjects and normalized practices reflect and reproduce hierarchies of gender, sexuality, race, class, nationality and ability? How are these institutions, spaces, subjects and normalized practices interconnected through a web of power, control and profit? How have the uneven effects of globalization reproduced, altered or intensified these inequalities? What are the possibilities of resisting such inequalities and recasting alternative terms and conditions of economic, political, cultural, and social justice?
