Contemp Theories of Gender

Fall 2019

Taught By: Setareh Shohadaei

Section: A

CRN: 7941

Credits: 4

This course traces the thinking of the categories of sex, gender, and sexuality in the 20th and 21st centuries. We will follow the central debates among feminist scholars regarding the stability and the relation between these categories. The first half of the course establishes a firm grounding in the structural and post-structural conversation, mostly between second wave French feminists and third-wave queer theorists. In the remainder of the course we will look at the political, economic, and legal manifestations of gender, as well as post-colonial and intersectional themes put forth by Black,Muslim, and Indigenous feminists.
