This course investigates theories, methodologies and practices of feminist inquiry in the humanities. We look at the many ways in which feminist scholarship has sought to understand and theorize society and culture. It is designed as a seminar for students who are motivated to think critically about a range of issues related to gender and socio-cultural norms, institutions and relations of power. It introduces students to interdisciplinary and intersectional perspectives to knowledge, agency, social and structural inequalities.
