757A13 Theories and Methodologies, 15 ECTS Credits
15 credits, week 34-43
The students acquire a broad and systematic overview and a considerable degree of specialized and critical in-depth knowledge about theories of gender and intersectionality and about different feminist theoretical and methodological frameworks and ethical considerations, developed in order to integrate understandings of gender and intersectionality in a transformatory work to prevent and counteract multiple inequalities and to further the implementation of equality and social justice. Moreover, the students get an overview knowledge and an in-depth understanding of critical feminist theories of the relation of subject and embodiment, sex and gender, and a systematic insight in theoretical and methodological frameworks and ethical considerations, developed in order to analyse these relations in an intersectional and ethically sustainable perspective and in a context of transformatory work. The students learn to understand and analyse the relation between critical theories of intersectionality and politics to prevent and counteract multiple inequalities and to further the implementation of equality and social justice. The theoretical work is combined with analyses of examples. This allows the students to build up a strong competence in terms of identifying, choosing and using relevant theoretical and methodological frameworks, ethical approaches and analytical strategies in order to carry out scholarly investigations of questions related to gender and intersectionality, body and subject, in a context of social processes of change.
