What is feminism? What is feminist theory? And how have critiques of feminism by women of color, women in the global south, and sexual minorities reshaped the meaning(s) of feminism? How do popular feminism and academic feminism intersect, and what are the opportunities for collaborations between these two arenas?

In this course we will survey a wide range of feminist thought and seek to answer these questions and others through a variety of historical and contemporary readings, class discussions, and oral presentations. We will study the history of feminism in the US as both a social movement for women’s rights and gender equality, and a significant paradigmatic shift in social scientific thinking. Integral to our discussion of history will be a consideration of the different forms of feminism that have emerged over time, their proponents and critics, for example: liberal, radical, Marxist, postcolonial, postmodern and transnational. Throughout the course we will explore how knowledge, power and gender are interwoven in particular ways and how various feminist approaches seek to disrupt and reshape these taken-for-granted systems of inequality on multiple levels.
