GS 420 - Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Theory

3 credit(s)
In this introduction to primary texts in the theories of feminism, gender, and sexuality studies, students read historical and contemporary authors in a range of interdisciplinary contexts, studying such crucial issues as the construction of gender, the importance of standpoint and location, and debates concerning essentialism, difference, power, and intersectionality. While gender and sexual identity serve as primary focal points for the course, discussions of race, class, and other categories of social classification are never far behind.
Prerequisite(s): GS 100  and 9 additional credits of gender studies courses; or permission of instructor.
