The course covers the historical debates within the ‘women’s movement’ in the United States by examining some of the ‘classical’ texts by Mary Wollstonecraft, John Adams and Sojourner Truth. The course also covers the political and intellectual contribution by women of color to the discipline by reading Gloria Anzaldúa, bell hooks, Audre Lorde, Patricia Williams and Kimberlé Crenshaw among others. ‘Foundational’ texts by Gayle Rubin, Judith Butler and Adrienne Rich offer a deeper understanding of queer theory’s influence to the discipline. Even as the course reads ‘classic’ texts of the discipline, we will critically examine the formation of a cannon.
