Become an agent of change and fight against inequalities and processes of discrimination!

Monday - November 23, 2015

Would you like to intervene in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society?  The Masters in Gender Studies at Linköping University focuses on intersectional gender; that is gender in interplay with other social categorisations and power differentials such as ethnicity, class, nationality, sexuality, age, (dis)ability etc.

o-GENDER-EQUALITY-facebookThis is a full-time programme that gives students the opportunity to explore how processes of social and cultural change can be initiated or sustained by integrating a critical understanding of intersectional gender, by counteracting multiple inequalities and processes of discrimination and by other kinds of transformative work. Students will learn how to act as agents for change, to actively change, develop and challenge existing norms and structures.

The aim of the Masters in Gender Studies at Linköping University is to provide students with knowledge of theories and methodologies in Gender Studies – Intersectionality and Change, and to enable them to develop academic skills to analyse and to intervene innovatively and professionally in gendered and intersectional processes of transformation in society. A key ambition is to reflect on and develop an understanding for links between activism, theory, professional development and career paths.

The programme is innovative in its cutting edge approach to intersectional gender research and teaching, as well as in its strong focus on professional development and career paths. It combines online distance education with intensive mandotary on-campus seminars. More traditional pedagogical formats are mixed with those that focus on written and spoken performances which challenge traditional boundaries between academic and creative writing, speaking and intervening.

The programme builds on international research traditions. It is linked to the excellent and internationally renowned milieu for intersectional gender research at the Unit of Gender Studies, Linköping University. This is one of the largest interdisciplinary research and teaching units for Intersectional Gender Studies in the Nordic countries with a staff of more than 30 researchers, including four full professors and many PhD students.
