General description

This interdisciplinary course familiarizes students with the Russian gender system and its historical development from the Soviet era to the present day and with discussions in feminist theory and methodology. It traces gendering practices in different spheres of life and examines how gender intersects with other differences, such as nationality, ethnicity, sexuality, and class. It also examines how gender has demarcated the boundaries between the private and the public spheres at different times and political circumstances, and how gender has structured and been structured in social and cultural transformations. The course consists of lectures and group discussions based on course readings.

The course is organized in cooperation with Aleksanteri Institute's Russian and East European Master's School.
