Challenging Societies with Gender
In 2019 Hélène Périvier (FR) will teach "Challenging Societies with Gender". The course aims at describing gender inequalities by analyzing the persistence and the specificity of this phenomenon. Particular attention is paid to linking academic knowledge and policymaking process through interactive case studies and practical dilemmas such as: Are you gender biased? What a gender equal society would/should look like? Or Does the gendered marketing of toys matter? Talking about series and gender: from Game of thrones to The Handmaid’s Tale...The ultimate goal of the course is to identify major challenges faced by societies in terms of gender equality.
