Transnational Feminism 7,5 ECTS
The aim of the course is to give an advanced introduction to transnational feminism.
The course deploys a Post-Three-World cartography and problematizes the hegemonic narrative that posits the transnational paradigm along the binary axis of “Western” and “Third World” feminism. It explores how transnational perspectives encompass concepts and debates in feminist theorizing and activism, in a wide range of historical, cultural, social and geopolitical contexts. The course focuses on local, national and global movements, as well as national and international governmental institutions and organisations. Specific topics include: feminist theories of globalization and transnationalism; postcolonial/ decolonial critique and postsocialism; theorizing from feminist borderlands; geopolitics, gender and sexuality; neoliberalism, NGOization and global governance.
