Gender and Diversity SE

Lector: FH-Prof.in Mag.a Manuela Hofer, BA

1SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

Students receive insight into the historical development of feminist topics, gender and diversity theories and concepts, whereby the difference and diversity, as well as processes of differentiation, are given concrete form through the core criteria of diversity. Diversity concepts are discussed, taking into consideration societal power relationships and social inequality, and put in the context of mechanisms of discrimination. Furthermore, dealing with discrimination with those concerned, personal positioning and experiences, and the consequences for professional relationships, are discussed.
Central concepts like construction and deconstruction or doing gender are illustrated. The students learn to reflect about their own societal role, their knowledge and their experiences in relation to diversity criteria. The integration of gender and diversity aspects in communication and intervention strategies by students is of central importance here. Additionally, the students get to know concrete approaches to work for Social Work, which build on concepts of social inequality.

1.5SWS
2ECTS

Lecture contents

The students reflect on the demands placed on writing a thesis regarding research strategy, topical focus and question. They deepen their knowledge about different ways of working, in terms of analysing the literature and familiarising themselves with the formal rules. They practice the scientific argumentation and analysis of subject-specific areas of discourse, learn to assess resources and understand the criteria for assessing academic writing.
The students are supported during the preparation of the exposé and narrowing of their topical scope. Concrete sources are discussed with them and they receive feedback on their writing and research process, while working on their exposé. The exposé is presented and discussed with the students during the module, and a general structure and time plan for the thesis is elaborated. Furthermore, they determine preliminary presuppositions in relation to the expected findings of their BA thesis.
