SEST 698 - Gender & War
This course provides an introduction to understanding the gendered dimensions of armed conflict and its aftermath. The course will introduce students to gender theory and it can be used a framing theory to understand war and conflict, as well as a tactic used by armed actors in conflict. The course will provide a grounding in selected thematic issues relevant to the study of security and military action such as gendered frames for understanding militarism and combatency, gender-based violence related to conflict, humanitarian response, and gendered approaches to understanding the aftermath of conflict, such as transitional justice measures and peacekeeping operations. The course is designed to combine theoretical and practice-based approaches to issues of gender and conflict, drawing from interdisciplinary theoretical and policy resources, as well as case studies from differing situations of armed conflict globally.
