These episodes of “Contextualizing Feminist Voices: Teaching with the Global Feminisms Project” focus on how individual teachers have used the materials in their courses. In each episode, you will hear strategies for using the materials that different faculty tried, as well as their thoughts about what those strategies allowed them to accomplish in their teaching. Though each podcast is based on material for a particular course, we think they have ready applicability to courses on different topics.
The Global Feminisms Project podcasts were created with a generous project grant from the University of Michigan Humanities Collaboratory.Music Credit
