What are feminist theories, and what does the study of gender and sexuality entail? How have these realms of critical inquiry and intervention emerged in relation to processes of colonial modernity and contemporary power relations that comprise our increasingly globalized world? This course explores these questions, and what are often conflicting responses to them, by tracing developments in feminist theory, and gender and sexuality studies, and how these have been articulated in relation to theories of representation, subjectivity, history, sexuality, technology, and globalization.
