MA Global Genders
The MA Global Genders explores international and global gender issues. In a world with huge divisions between the poorest and the wealthiest women, this course looks at the different forms gender relations take.
You will examine the impact of global migrations on gender relations as people move through space and place, and consider what global gender struggles Western feminists can legitimately become involved in.
You will also consider how development programmes can avoid the colonialist and sexist tendencies they have exhibited in the past.
This course will explore gender relations and international feminisms within a context of issues such as development, migration and globalisation, from the perspectives of feminist and post-colonial theories.
Key themes covered in this course include gender and post-colonial theory, migration, gender and nation, sexuality, gender and development, international management and forms of control, sexuality and cinema, and work.
