This course is about negotiation as a feminist - how to negotiate for yourself. We will utilize texts on negotiation strategies from the world of business, law, and political science, supplemented by scholarly works on applied feminism and social scientific approaches to negotiation. Students will learn about the multiple settings in which feminist strategies are applied to negotiations, from the U.S. workplace to international diplomatic conflict resolution. Readings will be supplemented by real-time in-person negotiation exercises (conducted online) designed to help students overcome internal and external barriers to negotiating for themselves in professional and personal settings.
Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
