ISM 205: Intersectional Themes and Design

This lecture and user experience design research course focuses on contemporary feminist theoretical debates and explores the complex relations and tensions between gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity and class as they relate to and intersect design. Through critical readings, central theories will be scrutinized to see how they are able to theorize other power dimensions such as heteronormativity, racism, (post)colonialism and classism.
