The interdisciplinary Summer School course Gender & Diversity Studies: Core concepts is based in the academic work that is being done at Radboud University Nijmegen and will be taught by faculty members from a range of disciplinary perspectives. In this intensive one-week programme we will introduce you to a variety of perspectives on gender and diversity, whether you are a student (BA, Master, PhD), a professional or an activist organiser. This course is designed as an ‘advanced introduction’ and not geared towards students who already have a strong background in Gender Studies.
An ‘advanced introduction’
This course is designed as an ‘introduction’: (1) it will start with explaining core concepts and approaches in gender and diversity studies, but will go beyond introductory textbook knowledge; (2) it will introduce an intersectional perspective, with which you can start analysing the social construction of gender, class, race, ethnicity and sexuality in society and (3) uses accessible language, while challenging participants to critically reflect on our knowledge, practices and perspectives.
