Course contents

The Seminar Ethics and Politics in the Perspective of Gender Studies will focus on "Caring for the World: Fear and Responsibility in the Global Era".

The lectures will be held on Mondays and Tuesdays at 5 p.m. from 11 October to the end of November 2021 at the Ex Convento di S. Cristina, Piazzetta Morandi 2.

The readings for the course are available- on loan or for consultation- at the Women's Library, located in the Convento di Santa Cristina, which can be accessed from either Via del Piombo 5 or the Cloister of Santa Cristina.

Teaching methods

The course consists in lectures, supported by multimedia tools.

This is a first-semester course, consisting in a series of lectures delivered in class. However, lessons will take place in accordance with the procedures established by the University regarding the COVID-19 emergency. More info will be published at the beginning of September.

Assessment methods

The final exam can be either written or oral, depending on the student's choice: students will thus be asked to select a topic from the syllabus and either hand in a paper or make a presentation on that topic. In either case, the examination will be geared toward assessing the student's ability to engage critically with the current issues.
