Cursusdoelen
- Students become acquainted with and learn to practice a new, critical way of looking at cultural practices.
- Students know the main themes, theories and methods as employed in Women's and Gender Studies in the Humanities and learn the historical development of intersectional theory.
- Students know how to make an academic presentation pertaining to above issues.
Inhoud
The aim of this interdisciplinary course is to develop and practice a critical way of looking at contemporary cultural practices. In these practices of production, dissemination and reception, masculinity and femininity are permanently (re)constructed, just as are concepts of class, race, ethnicity, and geopolitical location.
We will be studying cultural practices in various manifestations: popular culture (e.g. soaps, advertising, music icons) but also the cultural logic underlying art practice and visual etnographis research. In all these sites old and new identities are being contested and reconstructed. The interaction between text and image will be main point of focus.

Early exit option
Students who are required to return to their home university by the end of December, are allowed to choose an early exit option. Students must always make individual arrangements with the course coordinator. In general, there are two options that can be facilitated:
1. Finishing the course before Christmas break, receiving 5 ECTS for the course.
2. Completing the course by 'distance learning' (extra assignments, papers etc) in the month of January, receiving 7,5 ECTS for the course.
