PHI216 Feminism

This module introduces students to central issues in feminist philosophy. A key theme running through the module will be the way that issues not traditionally considered to be political turn out to be political when we consider them through a feminist lens. This module will involve much more engagement with applied contemporary issues than most philosophy modules, and students on it will learn how to write essays integrating more theoretical with contemporary factual content.

Preparatory Reading

Students without a background in political philosophy may find it useful to read Kymlick's Contemporary Political Philosophy, but no prior knowledge will be assumed.


Two coursework essays (one non-assessed) and one pre-released examination (2 questions).
