Gender, Leadership & Society (Module)

Module description

This module examines how the primary functions of the sovereign state such as governance and security and the most visible manifestations of state security, war and militarism, both construct and are sustained by specific masculinities and femininities. The module will also assess the impact of gender constructions on the lives of particular groups of men and women and guide students through a process of re-conceptualizing mainstream security and governance discourses by re -examining concepts such as nation - state, peace, security and militarism. Students will also study the gendered constructions, biases, and inequalities that mark both scholarship and praxis in these zones.
