Feminist Dilemmas

Spring 2019

Taught By: Miriam Ticktin

Section: A

CRN: 7279

Credits: 3

This course will explore current dilemmas in feminist theory and politics. For instance, topics include the #MeToo movement, women of color theories of care, femonationalism, intersections of feminism and disability studies, “law and order feminism,” TERF feminists and trans politics, and queer feminism. By tacking back and forth between theory and the way the history of theory helps us to illuminate current debates, we will learn about the potential and limits of feminist politics, theory and methods. This course will satisfy requirements in Perspectives for Anthropology students.
