After completion of this course, the student has learned to:|
A) critically navigate the broad and diverse field of feminist theories and epistemologies, among which feminist standpoint epistemology, intersectionality, postcolonial/decolonial feminisms, materialist feminisms, and lesbian, queer, and trans feminisms;
B) situate feminist theories in their historical-political context;
C) closely engage with theoretical texts;
D) present the gained knowledge in oral and written form.
This course provides you with a conceptual 'toolbox' that reflects the heterogeneous canon of feminist theory and the equally broad and diverse interdisciplinary field of Gender Studies. Each week focuses on a particular current of feminist theory - such as feminist standpoint epistemology, intersectionality, and queer feminism - by addressing both classic texts and contemporary issues and debates. Feminism is not regarded as a fixed or singular signifier, but as a field composed of diverse and even conflicting positions. Additionally, feminism (and the field of Gender Studies) is approached in relation to other theoretical formations and academic fields that intersect with it, such as Marxist theory, Critical Race Theory, Queer Studies, and Postcolonial Studies. Particular emphasis is placed on the concepts and debates emerging at the points of intersection and tension between these fields. |
This course is for students in the MA Gender Studies; students from other MA programmes should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.
