Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

What does the implementation of feminist theory look like on a practical level? Feminist practices are underrepresented both outside of the academy and within it. This lecture series aims to introduce and give space to a diverse range of feminist practice and to investigate the question of change within patriarchal, racist, heteronormative, colonial, and capitalist structures (among other axes of oppression). Intersectional mechanisms of oppression and counter-strategies will be a central focus of the lecture series.

Over the course of diverse presentations, the lecture series will focus on the reciprocal relationship between feminist theories and feminist practices as well as exploring questions such as: What is the relationship between agency and discourse? How can feminist theory be operationalized? How do theoretical perceptions and practical application affect each other? How can feminist practice be combined with, or embedded in, feminist theory? How can we use categories without reproducing their underlying power structures?

The lecture series should be an inclusive and participatory space, in which we can discuss, develop and transfer knowledge as a group. A transdisciplinary approach should help us in this process. The lecture hall is (wheelchair) accessible. Upon request, we can organize sign language translation. The majority of the presentations will be in German.

We have also created a public website to provide access to those outside of the academic sphere who are interested in the lecture series. You will also find the current list of presenters and presentation topics on the website:
doingfeminisms.org

Assessment and permitted materials

Learning goals of the lecture series:
• To provide a critical overview of feminist theoretical and epistemological approaches
• To familiarize participants with diverse examples of feminist practice
• To help participants identify the intersectionality of repressive mechanisms
• To problematize the dichotomy between knowledge production and societal structures

A “Leistungsnachweis”, i.e. a grade, can be achieved through one of the following final projects:

Case 1: Observation or implementation of a feminist-interventionist action. Both (audio-)visual documentation and an accompanying 5-6 page long text (around 10,000 characters without spaces) including a reflection of the intervention, its strategies, involved actors, and the societal consequences should be submitted. Furthermore, the mandatory literature and contents of the lecture should be integrated into the text. This final project can be also be completed as a group. In the case of a group text, you must have at least 5,000 characters per person (e.g. 3 person group = minimum 15,000 character text without spaces).

Case 2: An 8 page essay (10,000-20,000 characters without spaces) about the contents of the lecture series (mandatory literature and in-class discussion included). In this case you should either design a feminist intervention analyzing its potential for change within capitalist, racist, patriarchal, heternormative, ableist (among other) relations of domination (including, plan, strategies, involved actors, societal consequences, and a reflection) or you should keep detailed notes of at least three units of the lecture series and subsequently write a reflection on them with regards to content. This final project can also be completed as a group. In this case, your essay must have at least 8,000 characters per person.

Social and Cultural Anthropology (KSA) students will receive 5 ECTS for the lecture series. Consequently, they are required to complete an additional assignment (Leistungsnachweis) to receive a grade. They are required to write detailed notes of a lecture of their choice reflecting in regards to content and with reference to the required literature.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The final project (Leistungsnachweis) should be submitted on-time to the Moodle platform. There will be four fixed submission dates in order to upload the final project to Moodle, which count as examination dates. This means you must still register for your chosen examination date on u:space. There will be on examination date at the end of the summer semester and three additional examination dates in the following semester.
