GY357 - Special Topics in Geography 7 - This module examines the impact of gender and feminism on human geography, from the call to insert women into geographical analyses and take into account gender relations in rethinking dominant definitions of space, place and landscape to more recent debates on the need to recognise diversity and difference among men and women. It also explores the politics and practice of doing gender research in geography. Drawing on case studies from both the Global North and South, the gendering of specific sites (ranging from the home to the nation state) and processes (e.g. elections) is explored in the module. Students will be encouraged to become involved in class discussions and other active learning activities.
