Gender Studies | Graduate Topics in Gender Studies: Feminist Theories - Classic Texts & Founding Debates
G701 | 12728 | Maher, J


This course explores what are considered some of the founding texts
of contemporary feminist theory.  These works ask basic questions
about identity, ethics, knowledge, sexuality, etc.  Such works have
emerged in relation to a variety of theoretical discourses, such as
Marxism, structuralism, cultural studies, and others.  We will
examine the intellectual history of feminist theory and its
resonance with more recent trends in gender studies.
