IIS 080 PZ -Introduction to Critical Theory

Institution: Pitzer

Description: A survey of social and cultural critiques at an introductory level, this course will prepare students for advanced level critical thinking, interdisciplinary solution building and social change work. We will begin with theoretical frameworks in established fields of social critique, such as feminism, anti-colonialism, cultural studies, critical race theory, critical legal/justice studies, and women of color theory. The course also introduces postmodern theories in postcolonial studies, poststructuralist feminism, post-Marxism, border studies and queer theory. Suitable for first- and second-year students, as well as upper level students who feel they have not yet been sufficiently exposed in their education to critical and/or theoretical thinking.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
