WGS 3050 Syllabus

An introduction to the study of feminist theories from the 18th Century to the present. Students will study historical accounts of feminism by looking at primary sources written by influential feminists, as well as theoretical treaties on different kinds of feminism, from liberal feminism, to radical feminism, socialist feminism, black feminism, multicultural or global feminism, and so on. The class will be taught using collaborative learning and will rely on class discussion and interaction, rather than traditional lecture format.
