Introduction to Feminist Theories in a Global Perspective
Spezielle Soziologien: Geschlechtersoziologie; Zertifikat Geschlechterforschung
In this seminar we will get some insights in what is discussed in women and gender studies in non-Western parts of the world. We will read some important theoretical contributions and get acquainted with some debates and we will see how gender studies are embedded in broader women's movements. As most of the literature (with some exceptions) has not been published in German language, the participants need to be prepared to read English texts, further, knowledge of other languages is highly appreciated in order to report about texts and debates that have not been translated.
