Global Gender Studies

Global Gender Studies is a theme within the subject Global Studies. In these courses we problematise the concept of gender and what the organizing principle of men and women do to our society. The courses reflect the growing need to study gender from global perspectives. Hence the courses deal with gender related questions in relation to local and global power relations and processes of change. The courses aim at engaging a discussion of the possibilities of changing local and global power relations concerning gender, sexuality and identity.

Forms of teaching

The teaching in Global Gender Studies takes the form of lectures and seminars. In the seminars you will get the opportunity to deepen your understanding and let your views be confronted with the perspectives of other students. A fundamental part of the courses' design is continuous writing assignments, which give you an opportunity to develop your own thinking and writing.
