PHIL 250 - Feminist Theory

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as WFQS 250 ) In this course, we engage selected texts spanning the history of Feminist Theory, drawing from different perspectives and traditions as we do so. Along the way, we take up a series of related questions: What does it mean to do “feminist theory” — what does feminism do to/with theory, and what does it mean to theorize as feminists? How do feminist theorists navigate and resist their exclusion and subordination in/by “mainstream” or “canonical” theories, philosophies, and traditions? What are some methodologies that feminist theorists have produced and employed to generate distinctly feminist archives, and what is at stake in the production of such archives? Rachel Silverbloom.

Prerequisite(s): One unit of Philosophy or Women’s Studies.

Two 75-minute periods.

Course Format: CLS
