This is a cross-disciplinary course on biological and constructionist explanatory models for giving meaning to sex, gender and the body. The course is divided into two modules. The first module, Conceptualizing gendered bodies: historical and contemporary understandings and debates (7,5 ECTS) begins by introducing central concepts in relation to historical and contemporary frontiers of debate and knowledge in different fields and disciplines where research debates have been particularly marked. The second module Theoretical and methodological studies (7,5 ECTS) involves an extended focus on theoretical and methodological issues. Active participation by students in seminars is vital to complete course.
