Topical Section Description: The development of feminist movements and theories in the latter half of the 20th century has been and continues to be one of the most critical and productive forces to shape the direction and reception of postwar art. In this course, we will examine various trajectories of Western feminist theory and how they have intersected with feminist art practices and feminist art historiographies. By reading a range of primary and secondary texts, considering relevant artworks, and discussing their contemporary implications, we will consider critically a broad range of feminist practices and take seriously the urgent need to undo habits of classist, heteronormative, misogynist, racist, and sexist thinking. Through the course we will consider topics such as the definitions of sexual difference; performative constructions of gender; distinctions between sex and gender; relations between gender, sex, the look, and the gaze; the division of labor along lines of sexual difference; politics pertaining to representations of the sexed body; intersections between race, sex, and sexuality; relations between feminist and queer theories; those between feminist and postcolonial theories; and how all of these concerns might be put to productive and practical use against a heteronormative, masculinist, patriarchal, and white supremacist society.
