Critical Social Theory

This course provides a survey of critical social theory. The central issue is how best to develop an interdisciplinary theory of social relations, one that is both accurate and will facilitate human emancipation. Readings begin with historically important antecedents to critical social theory, but focus on three or four major groupings: a) the "Frankfurt School", b)poststructuralists, c) feminists, and d) critical race theorists.
