30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

The module addresses the production of citizenship identities within and through education. It also considers the ways this is gendered, with a particular focus on youth identities in the Global South. The module critically engages with contemporary international education and development policy agendas including:

  • Sustainable Development Goals
  • international policy conventions related to gender and youth.

The module explores in depth different theories of gender and identity. It looks at the particular insights they afford for international education and development agendas. Their insights and methodological implications will be further illuminated through close engagement with relevant research literature related to a wide range of Global South contexts.
