Gender Justice & Violence: Feminist Approaches - QMU Course (4 day course)

The course is aimed at practitioners and activists working in the fields of domestic abuse, sexual violence, gender equality, but is also of interest to other professionals and students seeking to develop their knowledge and understanding of gender based violence. 

The course locates gendered analyses of inequality and power relations at interpersonal, political, social and cultural levels within a broad framework of structural injustice and movements for social change. There will be an opportunity to explore a range of key concepts, theories and debates which shape the historical and contemporary understandings of gender based violence.

Teaching will take place over two blocks of two days (4 x 7 hours)
Dates: 16th & 17th October and 4th & 5th December 2017

The module will be taught at QMU campus in Musselburgh
