Course Description

Gender: History, Culture and Representation

Gender: History, Culture and Representation is a course run by Trinity College Dublin, Dublin. For more information about Gender: History, Culture and Representation at Trinity College Dublin, please review the details below.

‘The story is no longer about the things that have happened to women and men and how they have reacted to them; instead it is about how the subjective and collective meanings of women and men as categories of identity have been constructed.’ (Joan Scott, Gender and the
Politics of History, New York, 19988, p.6). This lecture-only module will examine the histories and representations of gender, seeking to understand how gender is constructed by societies,
institutions and individuals, through the critical analysis of texts, works of art and public actions.

Gender, its role, its construction and its historiography will be brought together by scholars across the school in an interdisciplinary module. The operation of gender ‘as a tool of analysis will be examined in histories of the body, sexuality, medicine, religion, politics, institutions and representations in a variety of texts and contexts which will show the inherent instability and elusive nature of many gendered identities.
