About the Course

Current norms around gender identity and expression, as well as sexualities have a specific cultural origin. To deconstruct our own perspective and understand how society responds to gender and the LGBTQI+ community, we need to understand colonialism and the social structure as well as the psychological processes it has put in place in relation to gender, sexuality and their intersections with racialisation.

This course aims to provide you with enough material and reflective exercises to challenge and question dominant perspectives on gender and sexuality, as well as to examine the socio-historical factors that still influence today's mindsets.

Learning Objectives
