Description

Should housework be waged, should sex be for sale, is the state intrinsically patriarchal? This class introduces students to some of the central debates in feminist political theory, which focuses on how gender matters to both everyday life and to larger, institutional systems and relations of power. During the first half of the course we will focus on key categories and analytic frameworks, e.g., public/private distinctions, gender, intersectionality, sexuality. In the second half of the term we will focus on specific topics common to political theoretical inquiry, e.g., citizenship, the state, violence.

Course Requirements:

Students who take this class should have previous coursework/experience in either political theory or gender analysis.

As a ULWR course, the class will include regular writing and revision exercises, including 3 papers.
