Students have an in-depth knowledge of the most important movements of political scientific gender research and know how to analyse the category gender in interdependency with other categories – such as race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion/ideology, ability/disability or age – considering their historical development as well as their potential for change. Students are able to critically reflect different political theories – such as state, parties and election systems, economic, social, family, labour policies – as well as empirical research with regard to their explicit and implicit gender norms. They are informed about current results of empirical political scientific gender research and know how to assess political strategies of gender policies on a national, European and international level in a differentiated and individual way.

The course provides an overview of the main topics in politics and gender. The category sex/gender will be analysed in interdependency to other categories, like sexual orientation, ethnicity and class. We will focus on political theories from the perspective of gender and queer studies and will analyse current and historical gender regimes.
