Learning Objectives

The course aims at providing an overview of the main theories relating to the concept of gender, its development over time and its relevance in social contexts. The course will explore the relationship between genders in the course of people's lives from a sociological perspective. The social impact will also be examined considering the micro dimension (genders and generations, family and extra-family relationships, interdependencies), and the macro dimension (gender violence, genders and economic systems, in the labor market, with respect to welfare models, migrations).
