Cursusdoelen
After completion of this course, the student has learned to:
A) apply postcolonial and gender theory to past and present events of conflict, violence and reconciliation in different geopolitical locations;
B) work with interdisciplinary methods that combine gender studies, postcolonial theory, conflict studies, legal theory, literary studies, media theory and visual analysis;
C) develop critical thinking for the analysis of complex political and societal transitions, addressing definitions of violence, human rights and peace;
D) bring academic knowledge to the professional field in the social, political and cultural sector.
 
Inhoud
The course addresses the historical, cultural, political and ethical questions that societies face during political transitions, which means after a period of conflict and war or passage from authoritarian or totalitarian to democratic rule. The course focuses on how countries around the world have dealt with legacies of oppressions and implemented a transitional process that leads to peace resolutions, justice and reconciliation.
It will do so by accounting for the contact zones created by gender studies and postcolonial studies. These disciplines all build up expertise around thinking about transitional processes and new forms of justice. Postcolonial transitions emerge as a consequence of (neo)colonial and human rights violation. Gender studies are at the forefront of these debates by contesting the position of women in conflict ridden societies. Postcolonial transitions take place both through material and discursive practices that account for colonial and totalitarian legacies within global dynamics. We will study these articulations through the analyses of historical events, legal entanglements and political and ethical problems through the close reading of novels, films, art, music and other cultural forms that convey transitions and innovation.

This course is for students in the MA Gender Studies; students from other MA programmes should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.
