Gender & Violence

THIS COURSE IS TAUGHT IN BUENOS AIRES

There are differences in the way men and women display violent behavior and they need to be better understood to prevent acts of murder and massive harm. In this course we will try to find answers to questions as: What are the origins and explanations of violence in all its forms? How are gendered identities produced and reproduced in society? How is gender implicated in violence? How can the new politics of masculinity and femininity inform our discussions of the connection between gender and violence? Discussion and analysis of a wide variety of materials from different disciplines will form the basis of our exploration that will focus mainly on the representation of violence in Hispanic culture.
