About the course
With departure points in relevant critical perspectives to intersectionality and power, students taking this course examine and problematise identity as a critical concept, political tool and lived experience. Theories formulated within the field of Gender Studies are central in the course material with a particular focus on intersectionality. These theories are then applied to examine and critique contemporary and historical perspectives on identity and experience. The intersectional perspectives offered through this course provides tools for analysing social division, segregation, inequality and injustice in relation to issues such as gender, race, class, or ability and critiquing how power operates within the construction of difference and belonging.
