Course summary

Look at the world through the lens of gender. In the wake of the #MeToo movement and a much wider public discourse on many other gender issues, there has never been a better time to study this subject.

On this course, you’ll explore the fundamental debates of gender studies, focusing on gendered aspects of society and culture and its links with other inequalities and social divisions. From literary theory to online activism, you’ll untangle the dynamics of gender that structure the private and public worlds in which women and men, girls and boys operate.

You will benefit from UEA’s expertise in politics and sociology – vital to understanding social change, women’s rights and equality issues more broadly – as well as law, business and development studies. What’s more, you’ll learn about feminist research methods, equipping you with the tools to actively participate in the shaping of the field yourself.

ABOUT

Our MA Gender Studies responds to the contemporary moment in which issues of equality and diversity are seen as vital for organisational success and public feminism has a renewed prominence in culture – yet tackling gender inequalities remains a challenge. The programme also has at its core an understanding that the study of gender is enriched and complicated by an emphasis on ethnicity, sexuality and religion.

Against this background, the MA Gender Studies develops the centrality of gender to humanities disciplines – literature, history, philosophy – while drawing on UEA’s strengths in interdisciplinary fields such as film and media studies, American studies and intercultural communication.

On this course you will explore culture, society and history through a diverse range of disciplinary approaches and methods. You’ll learn about the history of ideas and key writings about gender, and think critically about the direction of contemporary gender studies and the kinds of questions we should be asking about gender equality in arts, society and culture.

You’ll be taught by experts from across the many disciplines that fall under gender studies – including literature, history, philosophy, languages, film and media studies. And you’ll gain a valuable social science perspective on the subject through input from experts in cultural studies, politics, law and business.
