Purpose

This seminar aims to offer a broad and critical understanding of the relationship between gender and society. Due to globalization, immigration and increasing participation of women in the labor market, gender as a social construct has become increasingly prominent in workplace arrangements, political discussions, societal debates and academic research. An interdisciplinary overview of trends and theoretical perspectives will be applied to a number of substantive issues of societal concern. Sociological, economic, political, and historical perspectives will be considered. As a result, besides a broader knowledge on the topic, researchers will be able to discuss and analyse the relationship between gender and society. Moreover, by covering a range of empirical designs implemented to study gender, the seminar will provide the researchers with more specific knowledge on how one can do empirical research on this relationship.
 

Description

More specifically, at the end of the seminar, researchers will be able to develop:

  • an understanding of key interdisciplinary literature on gender;
  • a critical and analytical capacity to evaluate its scholarly validity from different methodological angles and within both a disciplinary and interdisciplinary context;
  • the capacity to fully participate and adopt a clear position in academic discussions on substantive theories and methodological design;
  • the ability to independently present social science research findings on gender both orally and in writing.
