POLS 4170 GLB - Gender, Power, and Global Politics

Credits: (3)
Typically Taught Spring Semester: Full Sem, Full Sem - Online
Description: This course is a comprehensive introduction to the gendered nature of global politics and how power and gender influences the world around us. During the semester, we will examine what cultural, structural, and political factors shape gendered access to power worldwide. We will discuss why women have succeeded in obtaining sustainable political power in some countries and not others. We will determine what factors influence why women and transgendered individuals are excluded from political processes and not represented proportionately in political, influential, or leadership positions. At the conclusion of this course, students will be familiar with multiple approaches to understand how gender matters in many facets of world politics and how gender can intersect with other social identities such as race, ethnicity, class, and sexual orientation.
