This information is for the 2013/14 session.
Prof Clare Hemmings COL.5.02
This course is available on the MSc in Gender, MSc in Gender (Research), MSc in Gender, Development and Globalisation, MSc in Gender, Policy and Inequalities, MSc in Global Politics, MSc in Global Politics (Global Civil Society) and MSc in Health, Community and Development. This course is available as an outside option to students on other programmes where regulations permit.
Sexuality, Gender and Globalisation, takes a case-study approach to questions of sexuality, gender and culture (in the first term) and a broad range of sexual formations in relation to nation and globalization (in the second). The full unit considers a variety of ways in which sexuality is central to the social sciences in today’s globalised world. Theoretical approaches will be woven through the course via case study material so as not to provide a false opposition between example and approach. The course will allow a more thorough grounding in this area than the half unit, and will include a high element of student participation and group work. It is interdisciplinary but does not have a pre-requisite.
