The aim of this module is to introduce students to theories of feminism. Since the re-emergence of feminism in the west in the 1960s and its establishment as an academic subject, a wide range of feminist theories has developed from the more recognisable liberal varieties to the more controversial postmodern feminisms. This module will introduce a selection of these theories. We will also look at some specific issues such as: women and medicine, science and technologies and sexualities.
