Gendered bodies: Theories and Challenges
This course gives an overview of the vast field of theory of the body within gender and feminist research. Looking at different ways in which the body and embodiment are approached and conceptualized, the course addresses issues concerning both the stability and the fluidity of bodies, focusing on the power of the sexually marked body to stabilize conventional gender identities as well as the body as a subversive force and a carrier of changing temporal and spatial inscriptions.
The course will be held in English.
