Contemporary Feminist Thought

In this course, which will be organized as a seminar, we will read contemporary feminist works examining feminist approaches to explaining women's experiences, their representations, and their relative positions in society. We will examine critically the theoretical assumptions of various schools of thought, and pay particular attention to the theoretical contributions women of color have brought to feminist thought. Finally, we will also analyze selected contemporary social issues from the vantage point of different feminist perspectives.
