Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

CONTENT AND AIM:

“Gender, Illiberalism, Neoliberalism,” interrogates how feminist and queer theory make sense of our current political moment. Within a vast literature on neoliberal transformations since the 1980s, Part I of the course aims to uncover how neoliberal ideology and state transformations have changed feminist and queer activism; and, in turn, how a gender-sensitive analysis sharpen insights into neoliberal transformations.

Part II moves to even more recent developments, focusing on “Illiberalism” as a new set of challenges and transformations for women’s and LGBTQ+ equality. It aims to identify the contours of “illiberalism,” while also showing the points of distinction and convergence between illiberalism and neoliberalism. Part III also considers whether we have we entered a “post-neoliberal” moment, moving neoliberalism into a new stage, and therefore with new implications for gender equality and inequality.

Part III asks: Is there hope to be uncovered in the midst of the double challenges to gender equality imposed by illiberal and neoliberal politics?
