“Neoliberalism” is a very trendy concept in the humanities and social sciences, and among progressive cultural critics and journalists. But what is it? What do we mean when we say “neoliberalism”? This course will survey theories of neoliberalism. We will look at philosophy, political theory, economics, statistics/big data, sociology, queer/feminist/critical race theory, and media studies. Readings will be drawn from across the humanities and social sciences, and students from disciplines including philosophy, religious studies, English, communications, political science, history, sociology, anthropology, science & technology studies, women’s & gender studies, American studies and others will find the course relevant to their studies.
