Course Summary

Violence and conflict are always gendered processes. Shining a critical light on gender helps us to understand violence and conflict better. This MA is ideal for students looking to broaden their theoretical perspective on the area of women, violence and conflict through applying feminist theoretical approaches and a gendered lens. Attentive to intersecting categories, you'll form an awareness of how violence and conflict affect gendered lives differently in local and global contexts. The course's specialist focus on gendered experiences of violence and conflict provides the advanced knowledge suitable for further study and careers in organisations engaging with issues around human rights, politics and welfare support. Our programmes emphasise a feminist sensitivity to difference and power relations, advocating transferable skills applicable in the realms of public engagement and career development. You will learn to analyse your own preconceptions and engage with a wide variety of social/political issues, facilitating your development into responsible global citizens. Fostering enhanced analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to communicate complex ideas with nuance and awareness of difference and diversity, this MA in Women, Violence and Conflict also offers a suitable foundation for graduates wishing to pursue doctoral research.

Modules

This module draws on three main strands: we explore the work of feminist artists, performers and writers; we assess how activists can and do use forms of art for political purposes; and we learn how to produce our own feminist cultural activist material (e.g. pamphlets, photos, slam poetry) for a specific context. No prior artistic skills are necessary.
