GEND 3127 Gender, Globalization and Human Rights
Prerequisites:Any 18 credits completed.
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week for one term.
Description:Students will study a range of human rights issues related to gender and globalization. To achieve this end, they will first endeavour to make sense of the concept of globalization; this will necessitate a look at how globalization is structured, how it operates and how it conditions both local and global contexts. Students will investigate gender relations, processes, and human rights in the contexts of economic, legal, political, and/or cultural globalization. Specific topics may include the feminization of labour and poverty, sex work and trafficking, development and neoliberalism, militarization, migration, and social justice activism. This course may be credited towards Sociology and Political Science.
