An interdisciplinary study of theory and research methods, this course continues students’ investigation of fundamental concepts (e.g., sex, gender, race/ethnicity and class). It also covers the political positions that have defined the American women’s movement, such as individual rights; the appropriations and revisions of major theories by feminist thinkers (e.g. Marxism, psychoanalysis); and the grounding of theories in experiences unique to women, such as motherhood. *Prerequisite(s): WGS 105  and junior or senior standing. Register by Instructor. Offered alternate years.
