Gender Without Borders MA: Course features

What this course offers you

This course:

  • reflects the research strengths of internationally recognised faculty members;
  • fuses theory and practice;
  • highlights the humanities (English and philosophy) as well as the social sciences (sociology), in a self-consciously reflective, transdisciplinary way; and
  • focuses on gender in its contextual relations to race, sexuality, class and other differences, with a particular emphasis on transnational and transgender contexts.
  • you'll also get to participate in the annual Exploring the Performative conference, which combines theory papers, a film screening, poetry and memoir readings and performances. Held at the Swedenborg Hall in Bloomsbury in Spring 2018, it included speakers from Canada, America and the UK, covering creative writing, cultural studies, drama, theatre studies, English, philosophy and dance. Papers addressed performativity from a variety of perspectives. Topics interrogated race, gender and bodies by reflecting on the social and psychological dynamics at stake in eating disorders, the navigation of racialised identities amongst minefields of micro-aggression, hybrid nationality in the context of the aesthetics of sport, how gender is a white invention, thinking performativity in the contexts of resistance and transgression, and queer clowning.
