This course is designed to serve as an introduction to some of the major debates and intellectual dialogues in the field of feminist theories. Through feminist critiques of texts, categories, epistemologies, methodologies, and pedagogies, we will ask probing questions about the gendered trajectories of knowledge production and how women have figured as silenced subjects of texts, and genres, and paternalistic state polices. Using a transnational lens to trace the ways in which gender intersects with race, class, ethnicity, sexuality and other registers of identity to produce complex structures of power and privilege in different locations and under differing historical conditions, we will examine their relevance to individual and collective experience. The course is interdisciplinary. It will deploy literary, historical, political, philosophical and economic perspectives, and use a variety of theoretical, analytical, and creative texts. By the end of the course, students will gain an understanding of several major debates and dialogues within feminist thought.

Course Requirements:

Course assignments include: reading, participating in discussion, weekly short writing assignments, and exams.
