Credits: 4

How can we think about and analyze international relations at the intersection of gender and sexuality? What might be the relationship between gendered actors of states and processes of securitization and militarization? How can feminist and queer IR theories help us understand the normative logic of state-making, statecraft, nationalism, empire, war and political violence? How do gender, sexuality and race have important roles in both war-making and peace-making? This course attempts to bring together the main theoretical concepts of international relations with theories of gender, sexuality, race, and intersectionality in order to provide multiple analytical lenses and epistemological tools for approaching and answering these questions. The course will look into various globalized contexts, actors, policies, and international institutions, while it will also pay particular attention to how feminist and queer politics get positioned and mobilized in the European Union and in post-socialist Eastern Europe.
