Gender, Identity and Inclusion (918M9)

30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn teaching

On this module, you will engage with issues and debates around gender, identity and inclusion in development. You'll take an applied, policy-focused approach to the study of gender and intersectionality.

You'll compare how different approaches to intersectionality have been used across a range of key issues and debates in development. The module examines these issues by focusing on selected sectors of development policy, including:

  • education
  • digitisation migration
  • conflict
  • care work
  • sexual health
  • disability
  • sexuality.

You'll consider how these areas interact with questions of gendered and other identities, agency, and well-being.
