Course Description
In the post-globalization era, issues, debates and concepts in gender studies have changed both at national and international levels. While building on the rich experience of the past, the certificate course on Gender, Diversity and Social Transformation aims at grappling with the emerging issues and incorporating a gender and diversity perspective in to social science studies. More specifically, the course aims at strengthening students’ understanding of:
 
•  Concepts of gender, diversity and social transformation in the Indian context.
•  The recent debates on gender, third gender, masculinities, women’s rights and empowerment.
•  The implications of emerging issues like globalization, disasters and conflicts, for gender relations and women’s rights.
 
The course will follow an action-reflection-action model (Paulo Freire). The faculty / resource persons will build on participants own experiences and knowledge base. The methodology will include group discussions, case studies, role plays, audio-visuals, input sessions, practice sessions and project work.
