Instructor: Matt Hernandez. This course meets MW 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. in PH 247.

This course is intended as an introduction to the philosophical issues regarding gender and society. We will begin with an overview of important concepts in feminist philosophy, such as oppression, gender, femininity, and masculinity. These concepts will serve as a framework as we move forward in the course, studying the ways power and domination manifest through our gendered relations. We will then turn to look at the ways multiple oppressions interact with, support, and undermine these gendered relations.
