By the end of this course, participants will have
• gained knowledge of critical frameworks for examining and understanding harm, violence and justice from a feminist, gender and decolonial perspective;
• honed skills on how to ask critical questions of the politics of harm, peace, transition and justice;
• furthered research and analytical skills, including how to produce a gender analysis of harm and justice through using literary as well as scholarly resources.
The module covers feminist theories of conflict, harm and violence; introduces students to scholarly debates on understanding sexualised as well as broader gendered harms in contexts of conflict and peacebuilding; it uses feminist, gender, intersectional and decolonial theories and critiques of peace, transition and transitional justice as its frame; it offers some exposure to the applied examination of mechanisms such as truth commissions and reparations processes.
