Departments/Programs:

An exploration of the varieties of contemporary feminist thought. We will examine the points of convergence among feminist philosophers but also attend seriously to the issues that divide them. Special consideration will be given to race, class, and diverse attitudes toward marriage and reproduction. Having established that feminism is not a single, homogeneous system, we will inquire as to whether this constitutes a flaw or a liberating potential.
