Learning outcomes

General description

The course deals with the role of the gender in war, peace and peacebuilding, including conflict mediation. Gender is used as an analytical tool which opens up a domain of larger theoretical issues which include, for example, the construction of femininities and masculinities in war and peace, cultural trauma, post-conflict exclusion and memory work, political agency, subaltern and the nexus of speech/silence. The course discusses also the ways in which gender can be studied (methods and methodology) and demonstrates the usability of a variety of research material (e.g. policy documents, documentary films, interviews).
