LLB-006 Gender Studies 2.0 CH (Credit Hours) 50 Marks

 

Rationale

Gender plays a central role in all areas of our lives, whether as our own identity in specific everyday situations in our private sphere or at work, as a classification of people into exactly two sexes as in various forms and documents, as a symbol in literary works, as a factor in biological differentiations or as a statistical category. Gender relations are marked by inequality and hierarchization. Assessments of appearance, way of acting, social positions, the distribution of income and power and much more is gendered in many different respects. Gender attributions and perceptions structure and determine the access of people and groups of people to resources, spaces and structuring power in the most various ways. Mechanisms of discrimination, normalization, privilege, naturalization, marginalization and identification, which are of great importance for current social, economic, technical, cultural and political developments, can be investigated in terms of gender issues. The need for gender expertise for analyzing gender relations and developing tools for creating equality of opportunities and anti- discrimination for questioning norms and normality’s  is constantly growing.

Objectives

Gender studies provide interdisciplinary academic programs that are both nationally and transnationally oriented. This course teaches the ability to analyze gender relations in various social, political, historical and cultural contexts. Students will also learn the various approaches of different scientific disciplines to gender construction and shaping gender relations. This course provides fundamental skills, methods and work techniques for the analysis of gender relations, discrimination and privileges in social, culture, historical and political contexts. The following perspectives are the key starting points for Gender studies:

  • The connection between ‘gender’, ‘race’, ‘social affiliation’ and ‘class’, as well as combined discrimination.
  • A critical reflection on traditional scientific categories such as ‘objectivity’, ‘rationality’, or ‘neutrality’.
  • The reproduction mechanisms of gender inequality.
