Gal Pals: Women and Friendship is one of the most popular courses on campus!
This course examines a diverse range of women’s friendships. Through discussion, reading, and films we will explore topics such as the meaning of friendship for women, how women’s friendships have been portrayed in literature and film, the link between friendship and social activism for women, and the political meanings of women’s friendship in cultures resistant to woman-centered consciousness. (Can be taken for Social Science or Arts credit.)
Offered in-class and online every year. Contact us if you'd like to sit in on a class when it is offered in-person!
