This course is designed to ground students in the historical foundations of feminist theory and to introduce them to some of the Wide range of current feminist thinking. As no course can claim to cover all of feminist thought in a single semester, priority has been given here to texts and concepts considered truly fundamental in the development of a feminist criticism. Using these texts, we will consider questions such.as: What does it mean to be a feminist, or to read texts in a feminist way? Is there a universal reality to being a particular gender (e. g., a ‘woman‘)? How do our experiences of gender intersect with our experiences of race, class, sexuality, nation, and other social locations? What is the relationship between academic feminist theories and feminist activism? This course is taught by multiple instructors from diverse academic backgrounds, all of which employ an interdisciplinary focus. A common focus will be to examine the mutually influential relationship between feminist thinkers and literary texts. This is a required course for the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor. This course is cross-listed as LITR312.
