An Introduction to Gender Theoretical Concepts through Feminist Writing, 7.5 Credits

(This course can also be taken as a seminar series, 3 Credits.)

This course is mainly aimed at doctoral students who are comparatively new to gender theory. The course provides an introduction to some of the problems, questions and dichotomies that are, and have been, central to much of feminist thinking and writing. With the help of non-academic texts (fiction, essays etc.) the course introduces basic concepts such as feminism, sex/gender, internalised sexism, and intersectionality.

The course is given by Tamara Andersson and Josefine Wällivara and will be given in English. The course runs from November to December 2020.
