About

The course package gives you in-depth knowledge of Global Gender Studies and focuses on power, politics, and political economies. The first part develops perspectives on how colonialism and globalization has inflected discourses on gender, class, sexuality, and ethnicity. The second part discusses political economies and the construction of gender, on topics such as new border and security politics. 

The package comprises the courses:

  • GS1215 Global Gender Studies: Discourses and Theories on Power and Politics 
  • GS1216 Global Gender Studies: Political Economies and Space

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.
