Post-Capitalist Possibilities: A Feminist Inquiry





What role might Feminist Theory play in making post-capitalist worlds possible? What capacities do we have as scholars to shape the world around us? What ethical responsibilities accompany this work? In this graduate seminar we will explore theoretical traditions that have contributed to post-capitalist thinking, including socialist feminism, feminist post-structuralism and anti-essentialist Marxism. To this mix we will bring other contemporary feminist approaches from the frontiers of socio-political thought on post-capitalist possibilities, including material semiotics, post-development, ecological humanities, resilience theory, post-colonialism, assemblage politics and commoning. Throughout the semester we will discuss how to use feminist critique to open up pathways for enabling research and how to enact post-capitalist possibilities through research practice.
