WGSS 20200 - Histories of Feminist Thought

Course Credit: 1
HISTORIES OF FEMINIST THOUGHT This course is a broad introduction to the histories of feminist thought, including major influences in Indigenous and women of color (WoC) feminist thought, as well as Euro-American feminist thought with its roots in early modern Europe, the women’s suffrage movement (often characterized as the First Wave) through the Second and Third Waves of the women’s movement and beyond. This course rejects a singular Eurocentric, Global North history of feminism in favor of addressing the intersections and controversies that have emerged among Euro-American feminists, WoC and postcolonial feminist critiques, and within queer studies and queer theory. Prerequisite(s): WGSS 12000; or permission of instructor. [AH, HSS]
