This programme aims to provide a solid grounding in interdisciplinary women's studies, emphasising gendered aspects in relation to violence and conflict in national/international contexts; to expose students to an interdisciplinary range of conceptual, theoretical and methodological approaches to and debates on violence against women and in contexts of violent conflict; the course also aims to familiarise students with the epistemological and philosophical underpinnings of research methodologies, the politics and ethics of research, the principles of research design and to enable them to evaluate and apply a range of methodologies to research questions related to issues of violence against women; to foster the development of a critical, self-reflexive and independent approach to research and scholarship, as well as the acquisition of transferable skills.
