AAST 355 - Feminist Theory

FC SSCI
4 credits
In this course we will engage historical and contemporary feminist thought from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and theoretical orientations. This course introduces students to key theories, frameworks, and approaches in feminist theory, its central concepts, key interventions, ongoing debates, and will explore themes such as sex, sexuality, gender, difference, positionality, situated knowledge, intersectionality, domination, oppression, violence, power, and liberation. We will explore these themes and more through the work of leading feminist scholars, such as Simone de Beauvoir, Judith Butler, bell hooks, Angela Davis, Kimberlé Crenshaw, and Patricia Hill Collins. Recommended Preparation: one course in Africana studies or politics.

This course is cross-listed with POLT-355
