Feminist Theory
FGSS 209
Fall 2006
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ENGL 282

What is theory? For that matter, what is feminism? How does theory matter to feminism? To address these questions we will read a wide range of theorists who consider subjectivity, identity, power, gender, sexual difference, transnational feminism, and social movement. Throughout the semester we will analyze a contradiction at the heart of feminist theories and practices: gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and class are interdependent (each depends on the others for its meaning) and autonomous (each stands alone).
