This course focuses on political economies and the construction of gender and gendered and globalized space. We focus on both current research and historical studies on gender, economy, resistance, labor, and industry. We discuss how globalization frames and produces discourses on gender and identity. The course further discusses the translocal context in relation to space, as a place where gender is constructed as well as a factor that shapes the globalized 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.
