Description

This module will discuss new ways of theorizing gender and mobilities. In today's context of global social transformations, increased migration and mobility worldwide and enhanced transnationalisation of social realities, new issues have been emerging that pose new challenges to so-called 'traditional' (national) gender regimes and for which we do not possess the scientific knowledge to fully understand the gendered mechanisms at work. We will hence focus on different forms of mobility -migration being on of them. We are interested in how they are embedded in global ( gendered) labour markets, particular national (gendered) migration and mobility regimes, social networks and gendered representations. The module is open to doctoral students working in any aspect of this field of interest, for instance, highly educated migration, family reunification, irregular migration, sex work (informal and informal), business mobility, return mobilities and many others. A particular interest lies in the question of analyzing gender and mobilities without reproducing the logic of nation-states regimes, without applying an 'ethnic lens'.
