Description
CAPSTONE
Designed as a capstone, this course is a seminar that allows students to explore feminist theory and methodology in greater depth. We will pay particular attention to the current state of feminist theory as we consider future directions and challenges, and address the ways in which feminist theories and methodologies can inform research in other disciplines. Students will respond to a series of intense readings that focus on the intersections of feminist theory with other theoretical approaches, such as queer theory, environmental ethics, and critical race theory, among others. Using this theoretical foundation, students will construct a research project of their own design that will apply academic work to a "real world" setting and prepare students for careers and/or graduate study.
