Course Content (Syllabus)
The course aims at introducing basic issues with regard to the production and teaching of scientific knowledge that were raised by Gender Studies, as a consequence of the women’s movement in the late ’60s. For example, how do the socially constructed differences and inequalities between men and women inform the objects of inquiry, the scientific theories and methodologies, and so on. The conceptualization of gender holds a pivotal position in the above investigations: gender as performance (Judith Butler) will be a basic tenet throughout the course, including the written assignment. The course will be conducted in the form of a Ringvorlesung with contributions also by other colleagues mainly from the fields of Greek, German, French, Italian, English Philology, and Pedagogical science.
