Course summary

Overview Gender matters and has always mattered, from issues of violence against women and girls; trans-exclusion and liberation; toxic masculinity; and UN Sustainable Development Goals, gender inflects the everyday and the institutional experiences of every person on this globe. There has never been a better time to study this subject. On this MA in Gender Studies, you’ll explore the fundamental debates of gender studies, focusing on gendered aspects of society and culture and its links with other inequalities and social divisions. From literary theory to online activism, you’ll untangle the dynamics of gender that structure the private and public worlds in which women and girls, men and boys, and folks living beyond the binary operate. You will benefit from UEA’s expertise across the humanities, in politics and sociology – vital to understanding social change, gender-based rights and equality issues more broadly – as well as literature, media, history, and development studies. What’s more, you’ll learn about feminist research methods, equipping you with the tools to actively participate in the construction of knowledge and the shaping of the field yourself. About This Course Our MA Gender Studies responds to the contemporary moment in which issues of equality and diversity are seen as vital for organisational success and public feminism has a renewed prominence in culture – yet tackling gender inequalities remains a challenge and backlash persists. The programme has at its core an understanding that the study of gender is enriched and complicated by an emphasis on the identities it intersects with (including but no means limited to: race, class, disability and sexuality). Against this background, the MA Gender Studies develops the centrality of gender to humanities disciplines – literature, history, philosophy – while drawing on UEA’s strengths in interdisciplinary fields such as cultural studies, film and media studies, American studies and intercultural communication. On this course, you’ll explore gender construction and diversity through a broad range of disciplinary approaches and methods. You’ll learn about the history of ideas and key writings about gender, and think critically about the direction of contemporary gender studies and the kinds of questions we should be asking about gender equality in arts, society and culture. You’ll be taught by experts from across the many disciplines that fall under gender studies – including literature, history, philosophy, languages, film and media studies. And you’ll gain a valuable social science perspective on the subject through input from experts in cultural studies, politics, law and development. Disclaimer Course details are subject to change.
