Gender and Diversity SE

Lector: 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.

In this course students are introduced to the foundations and terminology of political processes, political communication and the aggregation of interests. Given concepts such as nation, democracy, public realm, political culture or power, central perspectives of political action in social work will be communicated. Subsequently, given select political fields, students are given the opportunity to analyse the connections between politics and social work and learn to develop political action in the tension between representative systems and non-formalised areas of politics.
