This course introduces students to key concepts, trends, and directions in the field of Gender Studies through the analysis of a selection of texts in critical theory, contemporary literature, and Hollywood film.

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.

Continuous assessment (based on regular written and/or oral contributions by the participants). 

Course examination according to § 7, statute section on "study law regulations".
