The courses listed in this module can be taken one by one without any pre-determined order. In order to receive a final grade of the module the student has to complete at least 15 ECTS. Student can include one course only to one module, i.e. a course of the North American Studies -programme (NAM) can be included either to this module or to the NAM-programme.

In philosophy as well as in everyday discussion, we find various meanings of "reason" and "rationality". Some identify rationality with the ability to argue logically, even with the ability to calculate. Others use the word "reason" when they mean the ability to organize sensations by means of concepts. Still others regard a person as rational if he or she trusts in sensuous experience. Rationality may be taken to be a property of the one who does what is necessary to do to realize one's goals. Some say that striving for certain goals, such as wisdom or happiness, makes one a rational human being. Everyday discussion tends to construe emotions as opposites of reason; in philosophy, the opposition has been both supported and challenged. One may also be called rational or reasonable if one is able to reflect on and to evaluate one?s thought and action. These and other articulations of reason and rationality will be discussed in the course on "Human rationality". The course will cover such themes as "Human logic and theoretical rationality", "The practical aspects of theoretical rationality", "The interpretations of practical rationality", "Rationality and normativity", "Rationality and morality", "Rationality and emotions", "Rationality and irrationality", and "Rationality and scientific research".

Each course meeting will consist of a lecture followed by general discussion. Participants should read in advance the texts specified at the beginning of the course.

Kurssilla jäljitetään sukupuolistavia käytäntöjä eri elämänalueilla ja pohditaan, millaisia leikkauspisteitä sukupuolella on etnisyyden, yhteiskuntaluokan, kansalaisuuden ja seksuaalisuuden kanssa.

Kurssi on 20h laajuinen ja koostuu luennoista (10h) ja ohjatusta keskustelusta luentojen aihepiiriin liittyvien tekstien pohjalta (10h). Luettavat tekstit ovat sekä tieteellisiä artikkeleita/kirjan lukuja että kaunokirjallisia ja journalistisia tekstejä.

(Opetus englannin kielellä - will be taught in English!)

Suvi Salmenniemi (Tutkijakollegium, HY) & Saara Ratilainen (Venäjän kieli ja kirjallisuus, TaY)

Kurssilla tarkastellaan venäläistä sukupuolijärjestelmää ja sen historiallista muotoutumista. Kurssi etenee kronologisesti 1900-luvun alkupuolelta tähän päivään. Kurssilla jäljitetään sukupuolistavia käytäntöjä eri elämänalueilla ja pohditaan, millaisia leikkauspisteitä sukupuolella on etnisyyden, yhteiskuntaluokan, kansalaisuuden ja seksuaalisuuden kanssa. Millä tavoin sukupuoli on jäsentänyt yksityisen ja julkisen rajoja Venäjän historiassa? Millainen merkitys sukupuolella on ollut poliittisissa ja kulttuurisissa muutosprosesseissa? Kurssin keskeisiä teemoja ovat ruumiillisuus, seksuaalisuus, poliittinen toimijuus, arki- ja perhe-elämä, työ, media ja populaarikulttuuri. Kurssi on monitieteinen ja sen päätavoitteena on tarjota opiskelijoille syvällinen tietopaketti sukupuolijärjestelmän historiallisista murroksista ja jatkuvuuksista venäläisessä kulttuurissa ja yhteiskunnassa. Lisäksi kurssilla opiskelijoita perehdytetään erilaisiin sukupuolentutkimuksen teoreettisiin keskusteluihin. Näin kurssi toimii hyvänä pohjana aihepiiriä käsittelevien opinnäytetöiden kirjoittamiselle.

 

Kurssi on 20h laajuinen ja koostuu luennoista (10h) ja ohjatusta keskustelusta luentojen aihepiiriin liittyvien tekstien pohjalta (10h). Luettavat tekstit ovat sekä tieteellisiä artikkeleita/kirjan lukuja että kaunokirjallisia ja journalistisia tekstejä.

Suoritustapa: aktiivinen osallistuminen luennoille ja keskusteluun sekä oppimispäiväkirja (15-20 s.).
