Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the past couple of decades feminists and women’s movements across the world have vigorously engaged in transnational politics with the aim of improving their own chances of influencing gender relations at home. How such politics diffuse and are implemented are issues of particular relevance to women in the global South. Questions raised further include whether a global women’s movement exists, who belongs to such a movement and how feminist(s) need to strategise. This class will thus focus transnational gender politics, which is caught between global imperatives and local demands.
