Philosophy of Feminism (PHIL*2060)

Term: Winter 2016


This course offers a survey of historical and contemporary issues in feminist philosophy, including such topics as "I need feminism because...", gender and sexuality in Plato's Symposium, Beauvoir's The Woman in Love, the objectifying gaze, rape culture, feminist philosophy of science, intersectionality, black feminism, cyborg theory and what fat is a feminist issue.

The course is designed so that students have the choice of opting out of the lectures/assignments on rape culture and body weight, as the course facilitator recognizes the triggering nature of these topics.

All of the required readings will be available on-line, via the University of Guelph Library. Additionally, hard copies of the required text will be made available on reserve.
