Feminist Theory

FG200 Students (Block 8 2012)

The magazine projects posted on this site were created by students in FG200 Feminist Theory.

Course Description

Feminism aims to seek justice for people and communities that are systematically and systemically marginalized based on their gender, race, sexuality, class, and other social, cultural, and political markers. In this course, then, students examine the many existing feminist theories—such as Black feminism, Transnational feminism, Xicanisma, Marxist feminism, Ecofeminism, and so on—that analyze the impetuses for and implications of power and dominance particular to specific communities across time periods and geographical locations. Further, as feminist theories are interdisciplinary, we study intellectual work developed in academic disciplines including, but not limited to, sociology, psychology, history, literature, political science, anthropology, and economics. Additionally, we are also concerned with feminist theorizing that depends on intellectual collaboration outside of the academy.
