The minor Gender and Diversity introduces the various facets of thinking in terms of gender, race, and sexuality. You will obtain knowledge about relevant discussions and concepts in the field of gender, race and sexuality studies and of the way these themes are discussed in different disciplines: philosophy, medicine and health sciences, arts and literature, sociology and anthropology, and religious studies. The multidisciplinary character of the minor will enable you to develop a diverse perspective upon the problems studied in two ways:
1. By meeting students from other disciplines in the classroom and discussing the reading material together;
2. By taking courses in various disciplines.
In papers you will apply your achieved knowledge to your own discipline, or you will develop a multidisciplinary perspective by writing a paper together with students from other disciplines.
The courses Theorizing Gender and Intersectionality, Sexual Health and Religions and Gender are mandatory. To complete the minor, you choose two additional courses from The Personal is Political: life-world and biographies of the Othered, American Film and Identity, Diversity and Inclusion.
