GEND 2506 Global Gender Issues
Prerequisites:Any 18 credits completed.
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
Description:This course will begin with the premise that 'gender makes the world go round' and explore the place of gender in global politics. We will consider how gender inequality at the global level impacts everyday life and how it also influences local political, economic, and cultural choices. Specifically, we will examine the ways in which the use of gender as an analytical tool shifts our understanding of global violence, militarism / security, international political economy, the environment, health, human rights and global resistance movements.
