This course fulfills the second STP concentration requirement for a course dealing with social and cultural theories. This course will provide students with an introductory look at some of the theories that have been prominent across the disciplines of twentieth-century social science, with special emphasis on psychoanalysis, anthropology, sociology, political economy, and history. The course considers a selection of influential theories posited by social scientists at different times over the course of the twentieth century, focusing on how they constructed categories that have become hallmarks of late twentieth-century understandings of human societies in the West: race, class, gender, sexuality, and culture. Our goal is to understand how social scientific disciplines have structured how we develop theories about individuals and societies, as well as how some of these theories have, in turn, challenged the boundaries around the disciplines.
