Feminist Theory

This project is devoted to a critical rethinking of foundational texts in the development of feminist theory. Each year, the Center chooses an author whose work has been fundamental to the development of feminist thought and praxis for the Classics in Feminist Theory Series. We featured the work of Simone de Beauvoir in 2010-2011, Catharine MacKinnon in 2011-2012 and Angela Yvonne Davis in 2012-13. Currently the project is on hiatus but we will feature the work of a new scholar in 2015-16.
