GWS 5650 - Feminist Theories (3)


When Offered: On Demand
This course surveys a wide range of contemporary feminist theories explaining the origins, dynamics, and transformation of gender-based inequalities. It examines the intellectual roots of modern feminist theories as well as feminist attempts to overhaul its intellectual roots. Students will be introduced to the connections between feminist theories and other academic debates, and they will also study political movements that reach beyond the oppression of women per se. This course examines not only the feminist revisions of and impact on academic discourse but also related intellectual trends and political movements such as postmodernism, deconstruction, poststructuralist theory, postcolonial theory, and critiques of liberalism, humanism, and Marxism.
