Cultural Perspectives on Gender and Families

Bachelor's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: KVL190

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

In this course we will investigate and discuss the contemporary Swedish family. The course will provide a general outlook on the structure, form and mobility of the family, as well as a closer and more thorough analysis of different developments within the family. Some of the topics that will be raised and discussed are fatherhood in transition, immigrant families and the construction of the other, and queer perspectives on the family. Although the general focus will be on the Swedish family, we will also position current developments and changes of the family in a global framework. The participants own experiences of families in different national contexts will be used as an important resource in the discussions and in the examination process.
