Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
This is a basic subject, but it requires familiarity with the philosophy subjects studied in this Bachelor.
Objectives
The primary objective of a course on Feminism(s) must be to familiarize students sufficiently, and sufficiently analytically, with the developments of feminist theories, and of the forms of activism that sustain them in the last two centuries. It is essential, therefore, to know the reasons for the feminist response and its various modulations, covering not only the standard modalities of feminism but also the different developments of LGTBI studies, queer etc.
