|Historiographies of Intersectional Gender Studies, 7,5 ECTS Credits|
|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the students should, on an advanced level within the field of Gender Studies – Intersectionality and Change, be able
- to demonstrate an overview knowledge and a critical understanding of historiographies of current debates in research and development work within the field;
- to demonstrate a theoretically informed knowledge and critical understanding of the ways in which these historiographies relate to local and international developments of Women’s/Gender/Feminist Studies as a multi-, inter-, trans- and postdisciplinary field of inquiry;
- to demonstrate a theoretically informed knowledge and understanding of the ways in which these historiographies are intertwined with complex cross-disciplinary dialogues and critical interventions in both human, social, medical, technical and natural science disciplines.
|The students acquire overview knowledge and in-depth critical understanding of historiographies of current debates about research and development work within the field of Gender Studies – Intersectionality and Change. They learn how to identify, account for and critically assess relevant examples of local and international developments of Women’s/Gender/Feminist Studies as a multi-, inter-, trans- and postdisciplinary field of inquiry and as a critical intervention in both human, social, medical, technical and natural science disciplines. Students learn to identify and to critically discuss and reflect on significant examples of feminist interventions in different disciplines. They become acquainted with some of the ways in which such interventions have led to cross-disciplinary dialogues, and made Women’s/Gender/Feminist Studies develop as an independent area of education, research and development.|
|Lectures followed by discussions take place in the online classroom. Knowledge is further reinforced during online-seminars and -workshops. In between online-seminars and -lectures students study the course literature independently and communicate with each other online in peer learning groups, supervised by student tutors.|
|The course is examined through active participation in onlineseminars and -workshops and through continuous written individual assignments, submitted online.
