CFS 310 Critical Histories in CYFS: Gender/Race/Class

This course provides a space for critical reflection on the nature of power in professions serving children, youth, and families. Students will explore historical and contemporary patterns of feminization of these professions and the implications, including the social and economic de-valuation of this work and institutions as gendered settings. Students will also critically consider the racialized history of this work and resistance by communities served by these professions.
