Week 2--Reading, Interpreting, Criticising, Theorizing
Our texts this week (the first two in the course packet, also available to long-distance class members on-line @ http://serendip.brynmawr.edu/~adalke/femstudies/ ) were both written in the late 1980's: Schweickart's "Reading Ourselves" and Sosnoski's "Mindless Man-driven Theory Machine."
What are your initial reactions (to one or the other or both) of these descriptions of what it is to write/read/interpret/criticize/theorize as a feminist? How close does either theorist come to describing your own reading practice? In what ways does your own praxis diverge from those they are theorizing about?
