Learning outcomes

The students learn how gender, sexuality and society intersect, and shape each other and, on the one hand, form inequalities and, on the other hand, open chances to a more equal society, particularly in the context of Nordic societies. During the course they get acquainted with the use of various research approaches and conceptualizations, such as gendering practices, intersecting inequalities, political agency, emotions and affects, body and materiality, in the analysis of gendered and sexualized society. Further, during the course the students learn to recognize the implicit and silent doings of gender and sexuality in a variety of social contexts. In addition, the students recognize, how gender sensitive knowledge production is possible.


The students become familiar with current discussions in gender, sexuality and body research. The course provides knowledge of the ways, in which gender, sexuality and society are interconnected with each other, and the ways, in which the interconnections may change. The course deals with a variety of the theoretically informed empirical research on social inequalities and the research of the gendered and sexualized social divisions and practices.
