PHL 231 Critical Social Theory

3 credits

This course introduces students to the major themes and issues of critical social theory – a theoretical field comprised of interdisciplinary methods of analysis that aim to identify social ills born of the dominant socio-political structures of our time, to locate the mechanisms of domination, subjugation, and oppression to which they give rise, and to ameliorate those effects through a transformation of ourselves and society. Topics of analysis may include economic exploitation, classism, consumerism, race, gender, or sexuality. Methods of analysis may include Marxism, psychoanalysis, Critical Theory, feminism, deconstruction, post-structuralism, critical race theory, queer theory, or post-colonialism.

Prerequisite(s): PHL 100  or PHL 151
