This course explores important trends and debates in feminist theory over the last four decades. We will approach this vibrant period in feminist thought as an ongoing conversation among scholars in various disciplines and between scholars and activists about how best to understand and challenge the operation of power, power that constitutes differences between women and men and, as importantly, differences among women — those, for instance, of race, class, sexuality, and nation. We will also 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.
