SOCI 633-001: Feminist Social Theory
(Fall 2022)

04:30 PM to 07:10 PM M

Innovation Hall 134

Section Information for Fall 2022

While feminism has been practiced for nearly two centuries, the scope of feminist scholarship has expanded exponentially since the publication of Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex in 1949.  Within nearly every academic discipline, feminist theory has been developed to address specific social problems and problems of knowledge.  This course is designed to introduce the ideas and projects that have been formative in the development of feminist social theory and to engage in the important intellectual and political debates in which it has played a significant role.  The course material will be interdisciplinary, drawn from philosophy, sociology, anthropology, art history, political science, biology and law, and will be generated from a wide range of social and geopolitical locations.  Throughout the course, attention will be paid to debates within feminism as it has continually reflected on its status as both an epistemology and a social movement.
