Description

This course provides an introduction to issues and approaches in contemporary feminist theories. The readings, which include “classical” as well as more recent work from a range of scholarly disciplines, are intended both to introduce alternative—sometimes complementary, sometimes contentious—analytic frameworks and to enable us to explore the interdisciplinary possibilities and limitations of such frameworks. The course is not designed to provide a comprehensive survey or in-depth investigation of any given theory. Instead, our goal is to become familiar with some of the enduring themes and tensions characteristic of feminist analysis, while sampling from the wide range of topics that have been taken up by feminist researchers.
