Feminist theory interrogates and explains difference and inequality, critiquing power and privilege along the lines of gender, sexuality, race, socioeconomic status, and other social, cultural, and political markers. This course surveys interdisciplinary feminist theories from many disciplines—such as liberal, radical, socialist, psychoanalytic, and other traditions—as well as theorists who work primarily outside of the academy, from as early as the 1700s to the present. Meets the Critical Perspectives: Social Inequality requirement.
Prerequisite: 100-level Feminist & Gender Studies course, including courses cross-listed with Feminist & Gender Studies or Consent of Instructor.
