Abstract: Within this project, I examine knowledge production in Women's Studies as mediated and established through visual literacies. Drawing theoretical support from poststructural and postcolonial feminist theories, I explore the ways in which students and teachers of Women's Studies engage with visual texts and the ways that these engagements designate subject formation within the discipline. I offer close readings of my own experiences as a students of Women's Studies as well as introductory syllabi from the past decade.
