36:341 Critical Encounters with French Feminism [Mihelakis]

Prerequisite: 9 credit hours of Gender & Women’s Studies or permission of Instructor.

The works of French theorists have informed and inspired feminist thought. Yet, they are often examined through seconday sources or anglocentric readings. In this course, we will directly examine some of their key texts in translation, paying special attention to their vision of language, identity, difference, and sexual politics.

3 lecture hours per week, one term.

Instructor: Eftihia Mihelakis
