Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this seminar we will engage in close study of texts across the social science disciplines that can be said to make up the field of Feminist Political Economy. We will explore what exactly makes an approch to the study of political economy feminist, and discuss key analytical concepts, debates and themes.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

- Regular attendance (compulsory) and active participation (including group work) (20% of the final mark)
- One written reflection at the end of the course addressing the readings in relation to discussions that took place in the seminars (1500 words) (80% of the final mark)

Important Grading Information:
The plagiarism-detection service (Turnitin in Moodle) can be used in course of the grading.
The use of AI tools (e.g. ChatGPT) for the production of texts is only permitted if this is expressly requested by the lecturer (e.g. for individual work tasks).
In order to ensure good scientific practice, the lecturer can provide for a "grading-related discussion" of the written work submitted, which must be completed successfully.
The provision of all partial tasks is a prerequisite for a positive assessment, if not explicitly noted otherwise.
All students who received a place in the course are assessed if they have not deregistered from the course in due time or if they have not credibly shown an important reason for their failure to deregister after the cause for this reason does no longer apply
Students who credibly show an important reason (e.g. a longer illness) for the withdrawal from a course with continuous assessment are not assessed.
Whether this exception applies is decided by the lecturer. The request for deregistration must be submitted immediately.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as "not assessed" and recorded accordingly.
You can find these and other provisions in the study law: https://satzung.univie.ac.at/studienrecht/.
In case you have received three negative assessments of a continuously assessed course and want to register for a fourth attempt, please make sure to contact the StudiesServiceUnit Sociology. (for more information see "third attempt for continuously assessed courses" https://soziologie.univie.ac.at/info/pruefungen/#c56313)
