What is feminist theory? What does it mean to theorize? How can we think theoretically, from a feminist perspective, through the most pressing issues of our time? In this class we study a variety of feminist theorists who engage with contemporary topics, in an attempt to build a lexicon of feminist concepts that you are likely to encounter in your future studies and that are relevant to our understanding of our current world. While theoretical readings form the core of this course, we will engage with podcasts and videos as well. The semester project consists in either writing a theoretical paper or creating a podcast that explores a topic of your choice through a feminist theoretical lens.
