Gender & Diversity: Core Concepts of Society and Science

14/08/2017 - 18/08/2017

Application deadline:
1 april for discounted rate
1 June 2017 General deadline

Radboud Social and Cultural Research hosts leading researchers of gender inequality and diversity dynamics. The interdisciplinary course Gender & Diversity: core concepts in society and science, is based on RU's state of the art research and provides an advanced introduction to gender and diversity in social science in an intensive one-week programme. The course will be team-taught by nine highly acknowledged faculty members from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

An 'advanced introduction'
This course is designed as an 'advanced introduction': it (1) starts with explaining core concepts and approaches in gender and diversity studies but goes beyond introductory textbook knowledge; it (2) introduces an intersectionality perspective, with which we can start to analyse the social construction of gender, class, race, ethnicity and sexuality in historical and contemporary debates in society and science; and (3) uses accessible language, while challenging participation in thinking very critically of our knowledge, practices and perspectives.

Fundamental and applied knowledge
The first part of the course is dedicated to provide a fundamental toolkit for any academic who wants to conduct or understand gender and diversity research and gendered processes in society. In two days time, we discuss (1) core concepts, including sex, gender, diversity, and intersectionality; (2) how research design can lead to intersecting constructions of difference and biases in research; and (3) what the importance of the historical and political context is for understanding gender dynamics. In the second part of the course, we will apply different types of gender and diversity perspectives and theories by discussing several important themes (e.g., education, work, politics) in the social sciences and society. Each of these themes is fundamental to societal change and the production and reproduction of gender inequalities.

Practical skills
Besides the small group lectures on each of the themes there is ample room for discussion and during the course students will be working on several assignments. In each assignment we practice different skills that belong to an all-round gender expert, including academic reflection, giving voice, policy advice, and empirical research.

The Netherlands and Nijmegen
This course also provides an introduction to the Netherlands from a gender perspective. Many examples will focus on the Netherlands and we will take a gender tour through Nijmegen, the city in which Nina Simone once lived. Of course, when we discuss the Netherlands this is often done in a comparative perspective, and we highly value having a diverse group of students so that we van discuss contextual differences and similarities in (gender) inequalities and dynamics.
