POLS3447Gender, Race and Global Politics3 ch (3C) (W)
This course takes an intersectional approach to investigate the global politics of gender and 'race'. Questions considered will include: Why are there gendered, racialized inequities in the global distribution of power and resources? How have gender and race issues been addressed - and ignored - in international relations theory and practice? How do international organizations, international law, and transnational social movements seek to address gender and race inequities, how do these global activities shape local lived experiences? How do gender and racialization (and their corollaries, sexism, racism, and colonialism) influence our experiences of global phenomena such as migration, armed conflict, health/disease, and trade?
