Towards Emancipation: Feminist Theories and Strategies during 200 Years

The course aims to discuss and problematize classical and modern feminist political writings, their inherent ideas about liberation and change and the strategies deployed in the texts as well as those proposed by the texts.

The course explores how women in different contexts have worked to change and challenge patriarchal structures and how women have theorized the reproduction of patriarchal structures.

Language of instruction is Swedish. For more information about the course see the Swedish page.
