Gender and Post-colonialism in Latin America
The course highlights the impact of post-colonial thinking on contemporary Latin America research, focusing for example on theories developed within the framework of the so-called race-class-gender matrix. The course presents and discusses issues such as Latin American theorizing on gender, a perspective aiming at grasping the complexity of women subordination in a region characterized by mutually reinforcing and historically rooted structures of inequality. The course also enters into more specific themes: violence against women, sexual and reproductive health and rights, feminist activism and victimhood, social constructions of masculinity and HBTI-perspectives.
