GENDER MOBILITY AND DEVELOPMENT
Credit points: 15
How do gender and mobility shape development theory and practice? Mobilities and migration drive social and economic change across the world, and gender and embodiment interact with mobilities and development. This subject will review key issues and debates on gender, migration and mobility related to development. Drawing on conceptual frameworks in sociology, human geography and anthropology, the subject will examine themes and case studies that explore the nexus between gender, social and spatial mobility and in/security such as global care chains and human trafficking; displacement and bordering; anti-poverty and community economies. Students will learn and apply advanced knowledge about the economic, social and cultural dimensions of governance and power, individual and collective agency at the level of households, communities, the State and transnationally.
