Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course builds on feminist debates regarding the private and the public and production and reproduction that lie at the root of women’s exclusion. We draw from liberal, materialist and postcolonial feminist interventions into International Political Economy. We examine the relations between the systems of production, exchange, consumption and social reproduction. The way accumulation and social reproduction are organised vary greatly over time although the brunt of the social reproduction burden falls on women by way of the gendered division of labor. Studying different cases will help us understand the related dynamics of class and gender relations underlying particular strategies of accumulation. We also examine the effects of the current international trade and economic policies on housholds and the gendered and racialized nature of these processes.

Learning Outcomes:

• Students get to know different theoretical concepts and learn about the contributions of feminist approaches to the field of international political economy.

• Students will learn to apply theory to concrete case studies.
• Students will be able to explain the relationship between local-national-global, private – public, production – reproduction, formal – informal economy and political and economic power from a feminist perspective.
