Gender and Domination

Spring 2020

Taught By: Chiara Bottici

Section: A

CRN: 6785

Credits: 3

Why do people fight for their own servitude as if it were their own deliverance? This is a question that has been at the heart of political philosophy for a long time under the heading of voluntary servitude, ideology or, more recently, domination. The aim of this seminar is to explore how gender theories have proved capable of addressing such a problem in a way that challenged some of the most established tenets of the Western philosophical canon. We will proceed through a close analysis of key texts of Marxist feminism, anarchafeminism, psychoanalytic feminism, queer and postcolonial theory.
