This course gives a thorough grounding in Gender Theory, as well as an interdisciplinary approach to the issues raised by Queer Theory.
The course is aimed at students from a variety of disciplines, particularly those who require advanced theoretical studies ahead of taking a Master’s degree. The course illustrates how theories that concern gender, sexuality and power can be taken up in performative theatrical productions.
