Inhoud
This course offers an introduction to contemporary gender theories. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, education, work, medicine, social policy and the family. The aim is to give students the opportunity to familiarize themselves thoroughly with some of the most influential theories and major theoretical debates in the interdisciplinary field of gender studies as it has developed over the past four decades. To achieve that aim we will use a number of key texts that have centrally informed the project of gender studies as it stands today. The course is team-taught by several instructors from various disciplinary perspectives.

Course objectives: 
Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:
  • Understand and engage with central debates in the field of Gender Studies.
  • Define and apply basic terms and concepts central to this field.
  • Construct and enhance a critical understanding of intersectionality, including an awareness of gender and its complex intersections with other social, cultural, and biological categories, including but not limited to sex, race, ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, ability, and age.
  • Develop a skillset to think critically and thoughtfully about the self and others through a deepened understanding of how social, cultural, and biological categories shape our lives and our worldviews.
