The aim of this course is to familiarise students with key concepts of feminist theory for the analysis of identity and difference in texts, movies, and lyrics.
Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines feminist and queer theoretical perspectives including race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, and other identities. This course teaches students to think critically about the social construction of identity and the politics of knowledge production. Students will use these critical-thinking skills to understand people's lives within a global context and analyse the systems of oppression that contribute to continuing economic, political, and cultural inequalities. They will not only be encouraged to use gender as a category of analysis, but also to reflect on the manifestation of gender in their own lives, leading to a range of personal and intellectual discoveries.
