POLI 382 - Feminist Theory

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
How does the language of gender inform our understandings of contemporary and historical political struggles, power relations, and identity formations? This course explores the politics of gender and sexuality through its intersection with class, caste, race, land, and culture. The central line of inquiry is through how lived experience with gender operates in diverse contexts, places, and societies. Discord and difference amongst feminists reflect a plurality of ‘feminisms;’ in embrace of difference, however, hidden, silenced, and unscripted voices are brought to light. These intersecting concepts give definition to what breeds divisions, but also to how people mobilize themselves and build solidarities. We cover a range of approaches to feminist discourse and action, including: social movements, Marxist and post-modern scholarship, third-world-feminism, queer theory, life-writing, and activism. Akta Kaushal.

One 2-hour period.
