Gender Globalisation and Development (INTR8035)
This course critically examines the relationship between globalisation and development with the particular aim of demonstrating the varied feminine and masculine experiences of these processes. We begin with a critical examination of the key themes of the course and their location within the broader field of international relations scholarship. We also speculate how new insights into global political and economic processes might be generated when the themes of gender, globalisation and development are considered in an interrelated sense. From here we move to a more issue-specific consideration of these themes. We consider how imperial legacies shape the contemporary impact of globalisation in post-colonial contexts, how the globalised political economy is reliant upon gendered divisions of labour, the gendered dimensions of labour migration, how resistance and reform strategies are evident within the global network of gender advocacy, and how gendered identity constructs have been used to legitimate the global ?war on terror?.
