POLS 600: Contemporary Feminist Political Theory (3)

A detailed introduction to feminist thought post-1960. Examines feminism in relation to the categories of political theory: liberal feminism, socialist feminism, radical feminism, and postmodern feminism. Within these categories and separately, we will also consider feminism as it is influenced by women traditionally excluded from mainstream feminist thought, namely U.S. woman of color and women of post-colonial societies. (Same as WGSS 600.) Prerequisite: WGSS 201 or a 100-level POLS course or permission of instructor. LEC
