After completion of this course, the student:|
A) has engaged with a broad spectrum of research methods and methodologies in Gender Studies;
B) has acquired expertise in doing (empirical) research in Gender Studies;
C) will be able to position themselves vis-à-vis a set of contemporary feminist debates;
D) will be able to present an in-depth study of one or more aspects related to the debates in an academically sufficient manner in both written and oral form.
The course is designed to introduce RMA students to the state of the arts in contemporary feminist critique. It tackles and illustrates contemporary debates through lectures by different staff members of the Graduate Gender Programme. The legacies of these debates is traced by way of establishing connections between major thinkers in order to explore both how theories have travelled through space and time, and how debates transform and are re-written over time. The course focuses on how these debates have impacted on different disciplinary and theoretical strands in Gender Studies (i.e., performativity; intersectionality; difference; subalternity; representation; new materialism; posthuman; queer theory; trans studies; ecofeminism). The course aims to offer students a wide array of methodological and theoretical debates that will allow them to contextualise and position their research topics, including international developments in gender theories from an interdisciplinary perspective.|
This course is for students in the RMA Gender Studies and GEMMA. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by the International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator in advance.
