POL 309 Introduction to Feminist Theory

3 Credit(s) DPDS
This course will identify and explain core issues and writings in Feminist political theory. The goal is fourfold. First, it will introduce students to a theoretical framework with which to analyze the power relationships and political structures of society. Second, it will familiarize students with the body of literature that forms the core of this framework. Third, students will be encouraged to think about politics and political life from the perspective of these works. Fourth, building on their W-I experience, students will be introduced to and encouraged to use a variety of
writing forms to explore and express their own feminist positions.This course differs from Women in Politics in that it focuses on theory and normative issues rather than on current politics. Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite: W-I course.
