Gender Studies | Knowledge and Sex
G303 | 27725 | Allen

Exploration of debates about knowledge as cultural production or
representation, implicated in contemporary understandings of gender
and sexual difference. Feminist critiques of various disciplines and
fields are interrogated, in terms of their justifiability and
coherence. Significant differences in interpretations offered by
such critics are identified, and their impact upon areas of
knowledge during the twentieth century are assessed. Classes will
meet more frequently in the first eight weeks of the semester, with
individual library research activities comprising most of the second
eight weeks of class meetings.
