The broad field of Gender and Development (GAD) has benefitted from recent contributions from both postcolonial feminist and development theories. Consequent to these enrichments, the way ‘gender is done’ in development has been significantly changed. This course is meant for students who are interested to build an advanced understanding of these cutting-edge theories and approaches and in getting equipped with the latest analytical and practical tools. It offers a critical analysis of the current scholarly debates on GAD, including the perspectives on gender and empowerment, and contemporary approaches to gender equity and mainstreaming. This is done through a balance of thought-provoking thematic and regional case studies from different cultural contexts as well as in key gender themes such as intersectionality that are relevant to the practitioners of development. The approach is critical, bottom-up, and inclusive. A key question that will be addressed throughout the course is that, despite the sophistication of scholarly understanding of gender and inequality, why it is still difficult to fully address gender issues in development projects and programs.
