WGSS 351 - Feminist Theory

This course is designed to introduce students to feminist theory. Our study begins with the historical foundations of feminist theory, but also examines how transnational, indigenous, and queer feminisms have challenged and complicated those discourses. Course will be offered on even numbered years (Winter).  WGSS 351 and PHIL 325 are equivalent courses; students may not receive credit for both.

Credits: (5)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Analyze and apply the major concepts and critiques in feminist theory;
  • Analyze how poststructuralist, multicultural, transnational, postmodern, Marxist, and queer feminisms pluralize and enrich the notion of feminist theory;
  • Critically evaluate theoretical assumptions, identifying both their strengths and limitations;
  • Analyze current social and political issues by applying these theoretical approaches; and
  • Critically evaluate their own ideas and assumptions in writing and discussion.
