Gender and Diversity: A World of Difference

Key questions:
What is the problem with inequality? Which historical, linguistic and cultural processes, both within and outside organisations, perpetuate inequalities dynamics such as gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity, religion, age, and language?

Coordinator:
dr. Anna Geurts (anna.geurts@ru.nl)

General information
Why is there a debate about police officers wearing headscarves? Why do more men than women hold top positions? Do you sell fewer insurance policies if your name is Ahmed? By inquiring into historical and present-day cultural formations of difference between people along lines of gender, race/ethnicity, religion, age, language and sexuality, you further shape your own view on what the future of these differences should be, and start to think about how such a future might come about. For samples of the kinds of research that inform the teaching on this minor, please see the website of Radboud Gender & Diversity Studies.

The minor consists of the following fixed components (mandatory for Faculty of Arts students):

More information about (the concept of) a think tank can be found here.
Do you want to participate in a think tank in the first semester and do you meet the entry requirement? Then register for the course Denktank / Think Tank (LET-LETMI-DT00).

Electives (20 EC)

In addition to the fixed components, you'll also enroll in courses for a total 20 EC. You can choose between two options:

The course marked with LUISTERTAAL is also open to Lingua Receptiva students (“luistertaal”). Lingua Receptiva means that students who have sufficient receptive knowledge of French to be able to read texts and follow lectures, but whose speaking and writing skills in French might not be good enough, are given the opportunity to do the assignments, presentations, (oral) exams and assignments in Dutch or English. So for example, in case of an exam the questions are in French but you may answer them in Dutch or English. If you are interested and think you have sufficient receptive skills, please contact the coordinator of the course. Click here for a receptive skills test French.

Please note:

  • If you want to include a course in the elective space of the minor which is not included in the package or want to take a minor elsewhere (at another faculty or university), you must send a substantiated request to the Examination Board at least six weeks before the start of the course.
    If you want to include a different course in your interdisciplinary package, the Examination Board will check whether this course is indeed related to the theme of the minor and in case of (a change in) a disciplinary package, whether there is disciplinary coherence.
  • It is not possible to account for each student’s timetable when scheduling the courses for the disciplinary and interdisciplinary packages. This means you will only be able to take a course if your timetable permits. If you encounter any difficulties planning which minor courses to take, please consult you study advisor.
  • If you choose one or more courses offered by another faculty, please note that they might have different registration deadlines for courses, exams, and resits. Check the STIP-website of the faculty in question and/or the OER of the programme that offers the course you would like to take for more information.
