Aims, contents and method of the course

The aim of the course is a basic knowledge of terms, approaches and topics in Gender Studies. Students bring in their interests and everyday experiences, work on them according to their own ideas and get to know gender-oriented categories of analysis and theories. This should enable them to broaden their own experiences and observations about gender and other categories of difference such as ableism, racism, ageism, homophobia, classicism, anti-Semitism, and to reflect on these intersectionally within contexts of power. The meaning of the terms just used will also be explained in the course.
The students' own behavior in discussions, the use of space, and restraint within the course will be continuously included in these analyses of power relations.

Methods: Work is done alternately between oral and chat discussions in large and small groups, with digital whiteboard, etherpad and possibly videos. Students can also contribute methods themselves. No previous knowledge is necessary, all the tools mentioned can be learned via links from the University of Vienna, and there will also be mutual support with them in the course.
Contributions to the discussion can be made in all languages and only then translated into German or English. In case of structural or personal barriers, disadvantage compensation is provided for.
The students themselves decide how they would like to present the contents they have chosen in the course and are allowed to determine or develop their own methods in their contribution. The results of the work are then discussed and theoretically contextualized by the teacher. The course of the discussion and all working materials are saved, updated with each appointment, linked together and made accessible on the Moodle learning platform. In the final unit, open questions are clarified and all topics are connected with each other.

Assessment and permitted materials

The course is exam-immanent. As a basis for assessment, the preparation of a small group presentation including a copied handout, various forms of active participation (discussion contributions, digital voting, classification on fields, chat entries, researching contents, writing texts in small groups...) as well as reflection of own experiences and observations in the form of a final essay are used. (in German and/or English)
