RECONFIGURE IDENTITY CONSTRUCTIONS AND POWER DIFFERENCES IN OUR GLOBALISED WORLD
How do gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, dis/ability and/or religion contribute to the formation of social identities? What role do ensuing power differences between these vectors play in our globalised and mediatised world? In the two-year research MA in Gender Studies, you will approach a myriad of questions related to gender and other social categories through an intersectional approach.
The programme combines a thorough grounding in the historiography and contemporary state of Gender Studies as a discipline with intensive training in the critical practice of cultural theories and epistemologies from feminist, postcolonial, critical race, and queer perspectives. In a highly interdisciplinary setting and with academic staff and fellow students representing a range of fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences, you will be trained to apply these theories to the analysis of representations of gender in artistic practices, literary texts, political discourses and (new) media and technology. The international and intellectually challenging setting of this programme offers you the opportunity to broaden your horizon and to build an academic and professional network.
EPISTEMOLOGY, POLITICS, AND ETHICS
During the courses and seminars, you will learn about subjectivity, representation and power dynamics from feminist and queer epistemological, political, and ethical perspectives. How have feminist theorists rethought dominant understandings of subjectivity, for instance? How does geo-political context shape the conditions for films, literature and artistic production to appear? And how can established power relations be transformed by feminist thinking in view of a more inclusive society?
You will investigate the development of queer, feminist and critical race theories and immerse yourself in the history and current statuses of colonial, postcolonial, and multicultural societies. In addition, you will explore the representation of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality and dis/ability in diverse media, literature and new technologies.
