This course provides an introduction to issues and approaches in contemporary feminist political theory. The readings, which include “classical” as well as more recent work from a range of scholarly disciplines, are intended to introduce alternative—sometimes complementary, sometimes contentious, sometimes intersectional, sometimes not—analytic frameworks for the study of gender and sexuality. While our readings and subject matter are deeply interdisciplinary, a central focus of our discussions will be how feminist analyses contribute to, challenge, and enhance the practices of political theory. At the very least this means how critical attention to sexual difference(s) complicates but also sharpens understandings of power, justice, and the relationship between the two.
