DESCRIPTION

In the first half of this unit we will study the work of a thinker who has had a significant influence on contemporary feminist thought. For example, we might focus on the work of Simone de Beauvoir or Hannah Arendt or Luce Irigaray, or we might examine the work of Sigmund Freud or Emmanuel Levinas. In the second half of the unit we will read contemporary feminist theory, studying the ways that different writers incorporate earlier theory into their current work.
