Class, Gender and Race

Fall 2019

Taught By: Cinzia Arruzza

Section: A

CRN: 7042

Credits: 3

What role do gender and race play for class theory and politics? How should we reconceptualize class and class struggle in light of sexual and racial oppression as well as in light of recent anti-racist and feminist movements? This seminar will focus on competing Marxist theories of class: from objectivist or metaphysical accounts of class to the notion of class composition in Italian Operaismo and E.P. Thompson’s understanding of class as a historical category. It will also address criticisms of Marxist class theories coming from feminist, race, and postcolonial theory, and it will explore possible paths for an expansive and non-reductionist notion of class and class struggle.
