Omschrijving This course familiarises you with key theories and concepts in gender studies, including some of the most recent developments. We take the separation between sex and gender as our point of departure and continue to discuss different conceptualisations of gender relevant since then. We do so by reading different source texts and discussing them together. We aim to look beyond conceptualisations of gender as a separate category from e.g. class, race, sexuality by going beyond the white western canon. Assessment will be through an exam, a presentation, and two smaller written assignments.
