About the course

  • Programme/course information

    This course deals with gendered violence as a theoretical and policy issue. Taking departure from a variety of feminist and intersectional approaches the course will address questions such as: What is violence? How can violence be gendered? What are the relationships between violence, gender and power? How can gender-based violence be understood, addressed and responded to? How are notions of gender equality and violence linked?

New at Umeå University

  • Information due to COVID-19

    From 30 September, most of the previous COVID measures are lifted – welcome back to campus! However, things will not go back to normal straight away. For instance, some parts of your education may still take place online and it is still important to maintain distance to others for some time yet.

    The return to campus is gradual, and your education is unlikely to be back to normal straight away. Since the return to campus is planned by those responsible for your education, you will receive more detailed information regarding your studies from your department.

    If you will have housing through the International Housing Office you will receive information about your arrival in your offer of housing.

    Don't forget - Umeå has cold winters, so pack accordingly with a warm jacket, warm shoes, gloves and hat.
