Feminine Political Thought

La pensée politique au féminin / Feminine Political Thought

France is known for its prestigious tradition of critical reflection in politics, but the contribution of women to it is too often neglected. Based on texts analysis, the course will present major feminine figures of philosophers and thinkers from the 18th century to contemporary interventions. It will serve both as an introduction to the intellectual history of France and to its political development from the standpoint of gender studies.

N.B. The course includes a methodological perspective. Students can validate their credits in methodology (equivalent to 6525) by electing specific exercises (French type) for their evaluation or they can choose standard evaluation without validating the methodology unit.
