Course Overview

Feminism is one of the core social justice movements today. A commitment to gender justice raises deep philosophical issues. What is gender? What are justice and injustice? What does specifically gendered justice require? In this discussion-focused course, we will investigate foundational and topical questions of feminist theory, by both classic and contemporary authors. Topics covered include historical views; feminist ethics; feminist metaphysics and epistemology; feminist philosophy of language; Deaf feminism; and gender and its critical connections to productions of race, class, sexuality and disability.
