Global Gender Studies
The degree modules offered in Global Gender Studies focus on gender– and sex–based inequalities and formations in the world from specifically feminist and queer orientations in research, analysis, and theory. Combining the strengths and supports for these studies in existing Centre for Global Studies courses with a range of courses offered by Western University’s Dept. of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, this program of study offers remarkably rich opportunities to understand how global development, globalization, and cultural constructs shape and order individual’s lives and the dynamics of societies in the world on registers of gender, sex, and sexual orientation. Students gain especially strong study of problems in the mobilising of feminist theory, gender analysis, and studies in sexuality on global scales.
