|Subject Overview:|| |
This subject surveys recent developments in feminist theory and feminist methodology within a cross-cultural context. It explores issues involved in present-day debates about feminist epistemology and knowledge, including debates surrounding the relationship between western and other feminisms, debates between liberal, socialist and radical feminists; and the contributions of postcolonial feminists and queer theorists. It explores key feminist issues such as public and private, family, the body, self, subjectivities, sexualities, citizenships and the interconnections of race and gender, global and local identity politics. The implications of cross-cultural analysis of gender for feminist methodology and method research are explored through consideration of techniques of textual analysis, analysis of visual materials, feminist criticism, interviewing, and archival research.
|Assessment:||A research essay 3000 words 60% (due mid semester) and a literature review assignment of 2000 words 40% (due at the end of semester).|
