Women and Girls in (Inter)National Politics: Critical Theory

INTR 219/PSCI 219/AFR 217/WGSS 219/LEAD 219
Professor: Joy James
Fall 2020

critical theory - social theory that seeks to avoid the ideological assumptions of conventional worldviews and more traditional theories. In particular, it seeks to grasp the underlying conditions of possibility for social life, and thus for change in existing conditions. It also critically examines the categories of thought incorporated into theories and the dependence of theoretical perspectives on historical and cultural contexts.
