This course explores important trends and debates in feminist theory over the last three decades. We will examine various ways that feminist scholars across the disciplines have theorized power and difference with regard to gender, race, sexuality, class, and nation. We will also consider critiques of mainstream feminist theories from alternative feminist perspectives. And we will explore the relationship of particular theories to political practice and changing historical circumstances. Although our readings will focus on theoretical works, seminar discussion and writing assignments will encourage exploration of how feminist theories might enrich and illuminate participants' own research and scholarship.
