Hillary Clinton Course At Kent State University Talks Gender And Power
Hillary Clinton is also getting a course of her own. Donald Trump has a course of his own at University of Akron. The course is called "Trump's Triumph" and it is going to focus on how he won in the recent 2016 presidential race.
While Hillary Clinton's course is going to be titled "Hillary Clinton Case Study: Perspectives on Gender and Power." The course is going to explore the cultural perception of Clinton.
The course is being offered by the Women's Studies Program and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. It is through the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University. The Hillary Clinton course will be offered in the spring of 2017.
The reason why Kent is going to put Hillary Clinton up as a subject in their school is because of her lengthy career. She has also been voted as one of the most admired women in the world. Because of her experience and profile, Kent State can use her career as a source material for analysis. Which also includes her campaign for president of the United States of America.
The professor who approved the course is Molly Merryman, Ph.D. She is the director of Kent State's Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. According to the university, Merryman sees this as an opportunity to explore important issues which is the center's goal. Merryman's aim for the Hillary Clinton course is to help student's understand the events that unfolded.
Merryman counts the social situations that plagued the race which included trustworthiness, misogyny and sexual assault. These subjects are happening to women and Merryman wants to initiate an intellectual inquiry through public consciousness.
Leading the course itself will be Suzanne Holt, Ph.D. She is the director of the Women's Studies program and is also the professor in the Center for Comparative and Integrative Programs at the university.
