Overview and critical discussion of the research approach intersectionality. [Learning outcome: Students are able to assess central theoreties of women's and gender studies and can differentiate between central issues of gender studies. They have knowledge about social movement research (keyword: women's movements) as well as about the connection of gender studies to other disciplines in the humanities, like cultural studies, social sciences and economics. They are able to define the meaning of gender as a fundamental structural category in social contexts].

In gender studies, the concept of intersectionality seeks to combine different axes of inequality, such as gender, race, class, religion, sexuality, or empowerment/disability. This seminar will provide an overview of the development of intersectional research and theory developed by Black feminist theorists. Conceptual, theoretical, and methodological issues will be discussed. These will then be used to analyze topics in migration history and sources from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Discussion of theoretical and methodological texts, moderation of text discussions by students, reading and presentation of a monograph for a book club.

Attendance, continuous participation and active participation in discussion, moderating a discussion. End of the semester: essay
