Feminist class 'success'
A new philosophy course concerned with woman who made her own film and two others
feminist issues and women in society was added who created a "celebration of womanhood"
to the UNL curriculum this semester. which they performed for the class.
"Moral and Political Issues in Feminism,"
taught by Sarah Hoagland, was designed, to
analyze the women's movement and to
investigate methods of changing women's roles.
As the first semester of hew new class draws
to a close Hoagland describes it as a success.
"I'ye really enjoyed it," Hoagland said. "It's
been good for sorting out a lot of things in my
own mind." She said she is waiting for her
students' journals to find out what their
reactions to the course have been.
Hoagland described her approach in the
course as an attempt to examine "different
camps of feminist thought." After presenting a
series of ideas throughout the semester, Hoagland
ended the course with a criticism of the various
ideas and a statement of her own thoughts and
convictions. ' '
Core group
While about 30 people are registered for the
class, Hoagland said 20 to 25 have been regular
and active in their attendance. The class is mainly
women, she noted, who came to the class with
strong feminist backgrounds and a desire to learn
Holland called the group "my favorite
class," adding that the people in the group made
it possible to do "a lot of exciting things."
Students working, on final projects include one
The class began in a rather amusing way,
Hoagland said, when she discovered it was
scheduled to meet in the Military and Naval
Science Building.
Room a joke
"At first I tried to get it changed," she said. "I
thought someone must have gotten a good laugh,
and I was afraid that it could've been oppressive
to meet there."
But the class adopted the room as a sort of
running joke, and Hoagland decided not to move.
Having taught a similar course at Vassar,
Hoagland noted that the present class is "more
comprehensive and exciting." She said she plans
to teach the course again next fall and also is
working on plans for a class concerning the
concept of femininity.
Hoagland spoke at one of the WomenSpeak
programs and recently spoke to a group of Naval
wives and their husbands.
Hoagland emphasized that she doesn't want to
see a Women's Studies Department created at
UNL. By setting such courses aside in a special
corner, Hoagland said she feared the program
would "not be taken seriously." Instead, she said
she would prefer to see women's courses remain
in their present departments, integrated in
regular university curriculum.
