Description

This course takes up the question of how we might imagine feminist futures from the standpoint of the political present. Organized around key concepts and points of contestation in feminist theory--among them, intersectionality and coalitional politics, legal rights and their limitations, freedom and autonomy, and the aims of political action—we will also consider how we might orient ourselves toward the past. Dispensing with the waves metaphor by which feminist theory and activism is commonly conceptualized, readings and discussions will be drawn from contemporary political theory, critical theory, legal theory, disability studies, and feminist historiography.
