After completion of this courses, students are able to:|
A) understand, analyse, evaluate, and apply insights from scholarship on gender and social inclusion and social exclusion
B) conduct a limited individual research project analysing "new material" acquired in part via interviews with actors in social and political feminist interventions
C) demonstrate ability to apply critical and independent thinking in political and activist contexts and therefore able to write a 'management summary' or 'policy recommendation' directed at professional and/or activist actors in the field studied
D) reflect on connections between feminist activism and research projects addressing social inclusion and social exclusion.
Feminist and gender research has a long tradition of addressing the ways in which social inclusion and social exclusion is gendered. The field includes early women's studies' attention to women's labor in public and private settings, the gender of reproductive and intimate labor, globalization and domestic labor migration, EU policies aimed at integration of women in the paid labor force and its discontents, activism aimed at private and public institutions as well as the commons. In this seminar, an historical approach to this wide field of scholarship is combined with an introduction to the research methods of interviewing and oral history. For their final paper, students focus on an example of feminist or gender activist interventions. A 'translation' of relevance of findings to non-academic practices is an important component of this assignment (impact and valorization of research). |
The seminar explicitly addresses the opportunities, dilemmas, and challenges of integrating scholarly work in social and political practices of feminist interventions. A 'management summary' or 'policy recommendation' aimed at readers who can use the findings in their professional or activist contexts is an important component of the final paper.
