About the Course

The course is an introduction to gender issues in a global perspective. You will become familiar with theories and concepts that can be used to understand and interpret sex and gender in a globalised world. We introduce and explore key concepts in gender studies, such as sex, gender, feminism, masculinity/femininity, queer, trans, heteronormativity and intersectionality. We will also give you an overview of the academic disciplines that have formulated and studied these concepts and how these subjects have related to development and globalisation processes.
