Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Older persons, care labour and migrant workers are at the centre of this course's focus. With the help of literature analysis and exemplary instances of care recipients’ and care givers’ rights we will try to draw connecting intersectional lines. This seminar aims to let participants develop their own theoretical toolkit, with which to engage social inequalities around
a. age
b. health
c. migration
d. sex as well as gender.
Students can thereby develop a sensitivity to detect where respective group interests overlap, contradict or complement each other.
