Inhoud
This is an advanced introductory course providing research master students with a theoretico-methodological framework, and enhancing students' understanding of the meaning, function and methodological value of the key concepts of feminist, queer, and postcolonial theory, among others. Special emphasis in this course lies on how to approach academic work, and how to engage critically with textual materials and with students' individual research interests. The course also introduces the students to various debates and traditions of feminist theory and elaborates the terms 'gender', 'race', 'sexuality',  'difference,' 'other’, ‘experience' and 'location' (among others) in feminist scholarship. Participants are expected to approach the course from the perspective of their research topics and interests.

This course is for students in the RMA Gender Studies and GEMMA. 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.
