Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aims, contents and method of the course
How should Gender- and Queer Studies deal with the concepts of “morals” and “ethics”? What is the task of moral philosophy within the framework of feminist and gender-philosophy? Feminist ethics is concerned with gender-hierarchy and discrimination against women and with intersectional forms of discrimination such as racism, heterosexism, homophobia, class-struggle, etc. Queer ethics brings into sharp focus all forms of discrimination against humans who don’t conform to heteronormative gender-rules. Are central Kantian ideas (responsible person, autonomy, action, freedom, diversity, friendship and love) in terms of questions of moral philosophy, viewed through the lens of Gender- and Queer Studies still relevant today? Up to date issues such as discriminatory gender-policy in the workplace and the society as a whole, abortion and pornography will be discussed in the course.
