[Judy Chicago, 1979]

Goals and Intentions

The first project for this course asks you to write a reflection on your goals and intentions for this course. You are welcome to organize your reflection however you see fit, but in it please answer the following questions:

1) What does theory mean to you? What is or isn’t “theory”?
2) What does feminist theory mean to you? Are you already engaged with feminist theory? If so, how?
3) What are your goals and intentions in this course? What do you hope to accomplish personally, intellectually, or collectively?
4) What do you imagine will be the easiest part of this course for you? What will be the hardest?

Please note that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, but a stronger answer will elaborate on your perspectives and explain them in detail. I understand that for some students, this is merely a required course, but that doesn’t diminish the importance of any of these questions. If you feel like you’re only taking this course because it’s required for your major, please use this as an opportunity to reflect on the choices you’ve made to get yourself here.

This answer should be at least 1000 words.
