The aim of this module is to introduce students to some of the ways in which gender works in the theories and practices of international relations. There are a diversity of approaches in this new, but rapidly developing subject and the aim will be to explore a selection of these approaches. (Examples would include looking at masculinity and the making of war and the use of gender in strategic discourse).
The objectives of the module are both subject specific and general. The latter include written skills through assessed essays and examinations, and research skills via the process of assimilating and understanding the material. The subject specific objectives involve the attainment, by the end of the module, of an honours level ability to discuss the gendered aspects of international relations in general and in specific areas.
