- to recognize the social relevance of gender-critical access in different fields of the social sphere. - to reflect, from a gender critical standpoint, techniques and practices of normalization (in- and exclusion).  - To recognize approaches of critical gender research among aspects of diversity  - To observe and describe analytically the social inequalities along gender and other dimensions of difference

What does gender stands for as a social category and structure in Studies of Education? Why does the difference between this terms is an important analytical instrument?  What does gender as "social position(ing)” and “category of process” mean? Are there other dimensions of social differentiation – beside gender –where processes of exclusion take place? What does for example the criticism of black feminism argue and how it is related to the question of the "collective we”? In addition: How can these criticism be placed in the context of individual and collective involvement in power and domination?

 

With respect to the above mentioned questions, we will address within the lecture central topics, terms and fields of critical gender research. In doing so, we will elaborate different approaches to reconstruct gender as a social dimension at the intersection of historical, political and economic aspects. Furthermore we will focus on the discussion about the relationship between gender and women research and queer studies.
