We will examine various ways that 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. This year, we will add a special focus on feminism and science studies.
