This subject examines the relationships between gender, globalisation and development, illustrated principally (though not exclusively) through cases from selected regions of Asia and the Pacific, and drawing on the theoretical perspectives and insights of a number of social science and humanities disciplines. On completion of the subject students should have an understanding of problems of writing about gender and difference: debates on modernity and postmodernity: gender, colonialism and postcolonialism; gender, politics, the state and civil society; masculinities, femininities and sexualities; gender and labour; gender and development agencies; gender, religion and development; gender, sexuality, rights and transnational feminisms.
