French Feminisms: Texts, Pretexts, and Contexts

COL 269
Fall 2011 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 279, FRST 254
Certificates: Social, Cultural and Critical Theory

This course will focus on those texts of postwar French feminism that had enormous impact on feminist theory in the United States. While trying to account for the particular reception of Cixous, Irigaray, Kristeva, and Wittig in the United States, we will also have recourse to the literary, philosophical, and psychoanalytic traditions within which and against which these writers tried to imagine feminine desire, difference, and writing.
