Presentation

How we can understand gender in the contemporary world? How are masculinities and femininities made? And what is the relationship between gender issues and globalizing concerns such as environmental change and economic restructuring? This course will try to answer these basic but complex questions providing a global map of gender studies, covering empirical research from all parts of the world in addition to theory and politics. The main goal is to offer a basic overview on gender studies in the world, an engaged scholarship that moves from personal experience to global problems and offers a unique perspective on gender issues today.

It will provide a broad overview combining theory and practice to learn about complexity of multi-layered gendered realities in a global world.
