WGS 240 Transfeminisms

Transfeminism is an interdisciplinary, intersectional critical approach that engages with feminist, queer, and transgender theory. Transfeminism destabilized the notion of womanhood as a stable link between the female sex and feminine gender. It argues more broadly for putting the body back into feminism and focuses on intersectional feminist analysis. This course introduces the new and emerging tenets of this feminism, its current works and main authors.
