Tulane University offers ‘Feminism after Trumplandia’ course
As universities around the country continue to confront and reckon with Donald Trump’s presidency, Tulane University in New Orleans is offering a course titled “Feminism after Trumplandia” during the Spring 2021 semester.
According to its course description, the class, taught by Professor of English and Communication Studies Kate Baldwin, is being offered because, after Trump’s election, “many worried that a new era of precarity for women had begun.”
The course claims that Trump’s actions as president, including the “defunding of Planned Parenthood,” the “Muslim ban,” his “assault on pro-choice legislation,” the rescission of “protections for transgender students,” and even his “own history of sexual assault” present an “unprecedented dystopia for women.'”
Labeling Trump’s presidency a “reign,” the course description goes on to argue that the “Kavanaugh hearings,” “evil media men,” “Jeffrey Epstein, “Amy Coney Barrett,” and “Ivanka,” among others, have caused a “more robust” and “multifaceted” form of feminism to emerge in response to such “ravages of assaults.”
Also part of the description is a list of authors from “feminism’s archive,” whose work will be incorporated into the course’s curriculum and whose ideas students will be encouraged to draw upon for their required 10-15 page term paper. One of the individuals listed is Angela Davis, a former Communist Party leader and prison abolitionist who has likened the prison system to slavery. After being listed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List, Davis was arrested and prosecuted for conspiracy to commit murder in 1972, in connection with a courtroom shooting that left several people dead.
