This unit draws from two key fields of scholarship, gender and globalisation and gender and international development, to explore how gender fundamentally shapes our experiences of the world, from everyday interactions to international politics. The unit introduces students to important contemporary debates to stimulate a conceptual and practical encounter with globalisation, international development and security from a gender perspective. It will cover areas such as: global flows of goods, people, finance, images and ideas; new global sexualities; femininities and masculinities; gender, race and global cultures; gender and labour; gender and poverty; gender, religion and globalisation; sexuality rights; transnational feminisms and the gendered dimensions of international institutions. The unit will impart conceptual and practical tools to apply a gender perspective and analysis to the domains of theory, culture, politics, policy, organisations and employment.
