Summary

The course package aims at understanding gender in a global perspective. Apply for courses in global gender studies if you aim to specialize in challenges related to gender issues.

About

Gender and our view of men and women are one of the basic organizing principles in our society. The course package aims at understanding gender in a global perspective. This means that you will get an introduction to gender in relation to local and global power relations. You will also practice how to identify opportunities for changing the power relations between the sexes.
The package comprises the courses: 

  • GS1115 Global Gender Studies: Perspectives on Sex and Gender 
  • GS1116 Global Gender Studies: Agency and Structure

The teaching in Global Gender Studies takes the form of lectures and seminars. In the seminars you will get the opportunity to deepen your understanding and let your views be confronted with the perspectives of other students. A fundamental part of the courses' design is continuous writing assignments, which give you an opportunity to develop your own thinking and writing. The courses are held in English with both Swedish and international students.
