GSFS 301 - Feminist Theory

FC ARHU
4 credits
This course examines historical and contemporary feminist theories of sex, gender, sexuality, race, class, ability, intersectionality, power, privilege, oppression, resistance, and more. First, we will work to understand influential feminist theoretical texts so that we can then analyze them in terms of both the original context of publication and the contemporary moment of feminist studies. As the semester progresses, we will consider ways in which these theories speak to and challenge each other. We will study a variety of theoretical approaches (e.g. Marxist, Black feminism, Chicana theory, feminist standpoint, queer, feminist literary critical theory, cultural feminism, ecofeminism, postcolonial, and more).
Prerequisites & Notes: GSFS 101 or consent of the instructor.
