Course Content

This course stems from a discussion which argues that throughout history and across cultures, architectural and geographic spatial arrangements have reinforced status differences between different gender identities, and, thus aims to examine the relationship between space, place and gender from an interdisciplinary feminist perspective by focusing on the current debates in urban theory, social history, feminist geography, architecture, gender and cultural studies. Feminist postmodern critique of modernist either/or distinctions and the gendered manifestations of these distinctions in different political and cultural contexts which created exclusivist claims to places, and how these claims are both challenged and negotiated by various social agents constitute the central discussion topics of the course with special emphasis on the global sense of the place within a space-time continuum.
