About

On this course you will focus on culture from feminist and queer perspectives. You will  develop your skill to conduct critical cultural analysis individually as well as collaboratively. Gendered and sexual underpinnings of cultural practices and how cultural practices can challenge, subvert or reproduce relations of gender and sexuality will be illuminated and analysed. Engaging with a number of important topics in the study of gender and culture such as difference, corporeality, post-feminism, anti-gender mobilizations, and the digital turn, we will situate cultural practices vis-à-vis everyday life as well as global inequalities and social hierarchies, and discuss what ‘culture’ means in today’s neoliberal world.
