InterGender Ph.D.- courses in the spring

The Sweden-based InterGender Research School is offering the following courses taking place during the spring 2014.

Theorizing Queer Temporalities

Location: University of Gothenburg, Sweden                                                               Time: Jan 16-18, 2014                                                                                       Deadline for application: Nov 21, 2013                                                                     Maximum number of participants: 20

This InterGender course will focus on the recent body of work on temporality in queer studies. The course will discuss key queer theoretical texts on temporality, and consider these alongside a number of cultural texts and examples . Our sessions will be concerned with the theoretical frameworks which have informed recent debates on queer temporality (and also those which have remained in the background) as well as the methodological and conceptual issues of moving between theoretical and cultural readings.

Teachers: Jackie Stacey (University of Manchester), Sam McBean (London School of Economics), Kajsa Widegren (University of Gothenburg), Clare Hemmings (LSE)

Language and gender in interaction

Location: University of Karlstad, Sweden                                                                     Time: May 6-8, 2014                                                                                             Deadline for application: March 7, 2014                                                                 Maximum number of participants: 20

This course centers on exploring key aspects of the relationships between language, gender, and social interaction. Current and earlier debates in the area of language, gender and interaction are revisited with a focus both on the commonalities and differences between different approaches. Providing methodological discussions and illustrative examples on how researchers go about collecting and analyzing data, the overreaching focus of the course is how gender issues and other forms of inequalities have been addressed in recent discourse research. We will pay particular attention to research on language and sexuality, enactments of differences, and on interactional accomplishments of gender in various settings. A core idea behind the research examined is the ethnomethodological concept of ‘doing gender’ that had been present in some form since mid-seventies and firmly established during the 1990s.

Teachers: Don Kulick (University of Chicago), Ann-Carita Evaldsson (Uppsala University), Erica Sandlund (Karlstad University, Sweden)
