A principle objective of the project is to promote innovative undergraduate teaching in the region and to develop cutting-edge courses on gender and sexuality based on strong social constructionist and critical vision of sex, sexuality, and gender; to launch the teaching of queer theory, feminist analysis of sexuality and other approaches, which interpret sexualities politically, through the prisms of proliferated power and inequalities. The project will introduce and discuss fundamental ideas/theories/methodologies in the study of gender and sexuality, and engage with practical application of the theories in the comprehension of everyday life. The project will help junior university teachers formulate pedagogical philosophies and develop skills for intellectually productive engagement with students, critical rethinking of the state of the art in teaching and curricula on the subject, and the development of approaches to teaching that are critical and innovative in both content and form.
