WGST 800 01 January 2018 Catherine Biggs


The body of work which comprises ?feminist theory,? confounds disciplinary, linguistic, national, cultural, historical, thematic, and indeed ?political? categorization. Therefore, this multi-sited interdisciplinary seminar will foreground ?doing theory? as a critical activity and an imaginative mode of thought that questions existing meanings, inheritances and social phenomena, while articulating new possibilities and forms of knowledge. This course introduces students to theoretical approaches, vocabulary and key texts which have influenced feminist research, activism and practice in local and global arenas, in order to prepare them for advanced courses in our areas of specialization.


Students must be enrolled in the College of Graduate Studies and Research.
