Reading Sheets

Students are required to submit 25 completed reading sheets over the semester. Each is worth 1 point. Upload to Turnitin on Blackboard and bring them to class! You will lose a point for each missing sheet (e.g. 17 completed sheets=17 points). A template is available here: Readings Sheets.

Research and Evaluation Midterm

Students will research and evaluate the content on Wikipedia pages related to the course (groups, subcultures, artists, etc.). More details here: Research and Evaluation Midterm

“What’s Missing?” Presentation

Students will research a feminist art/ist or subculture not covered (or insufficiently covered) in the course and email professor for approval at least one week before presentation. More details here: “What’s Missing?”

Crew Wikipedia Page

We will edit Wikipedia pages related to feminist art and subculture. The goal is to produce quality online encyclopedia entries that will put what we’ve learned in the course into “practice” by making that information available and accessible to the public. The project was designed in part by the “Feminists Engage Wikipedia” project which encourages participants to share links to articles on Twitter and/or Facebook using the hash tag: #toofew. More Details here: Course Wikipedia
