Postcolonial and Transnational Feminist Theories
Inderpal Grewal
W 3.30-5.30 WLH 203
Fall 2016 
An advanced survey course in feminist theory with a focus on postcolonial and transnational approaches. It is often assumed that if postcolonial theory focuses on history and historicity, then transnational theories emphasize space and place, assuming the importance of networks and flows. How might we think otherwise of these theoretical contributions? What are their connections across fields and areas? What, finally, are the ways that feminist theory has come to incorporate these approaches in the way that it conceptualizes the "international," "global," and "regional" in relation to histories of culture, politics, difference, and intersectionality. We examine these and other questions of disciplinarity, method, and history.
