Theories of Feminism

Term: Spring 2011

Subject Code: GANT

Course Number: 6140

We will examine various ways that feminist scholars have theorized power and difference with regard to woman, gender, race, sexuality, class, nation and empire, and the relationship of feminism(s) to humanism and post-humanism. This includes tracing how theory and epistemology change and are changed by political climates, including the meaning of feminism itself. In addition, we will devote a significant amount of time to exploring the relationship of particular theories to political practice and changing historical circumstances.
