Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module will give experience in applying different concepts and theoretical perspectives to practical issues and problems in gender and development, as a means of learning how to undertake rigorous analysis. It will include focused sessions on the research literatures, followed by group work analysing case studies from different regions of the globe, on issues such as women's empowerment projects, gender and disaster, children?s human rights and migration, and managing development projects from a gender-aware perspective. The specific case studies to be used in each year will be based upon current debates in the literature and topical issues in contemporary development practice.

Principal learning outcomes

Seminars, group work, case studies and audio-visual material will be used to assist students in bringing together conceptual material and concrete empirical data and experiences, and to give practice in theoretically-informed analysis of practical development problems.
