Doctoral Courses 2016

Transnational Feminism, 7.5 credits

19 January - 23 March 2016, Södertörn University

Teacher: Professor Teresa Kulawik, School of Culture and Education

The aim of the course is to give an advanced introduction to transnational feminism. The course deploys a Post-Three-World cartography and problematizes the hegemonic narrative that posits the transnational paradigm along the binary axis of “Western” and “Third World” feminism. It explores how transnational perspectives encompass concepts and debates in feminist theorizing and activism, which developed in a wide range of historical, cultural, social and geopolitical contexts.

Thinking the Name: Language, Culture, and Philosophy, 7.5 credits

31 March - 4 June 2016, Södertörn University

Teacher: Professor Irina Sandomirskaja, CBEES and School of Culture and Education

This course will be dedicated to the theoretical and methodological problems of language and language critique. These constitute the very foundation of any critical approach in the social sciences and the humanities, an area of knowledge and intellectual debate that nowadays is determined by various modes of language-related and linguistic thinking (semiotic, rhetoric, discursive, performative, and other “turns” that have been, and still remain, relevant at least since the 1980s).
