Gender from a postcolonial perspective: Is it (all) about language?

Samstag 21.5. | 12:30 – 14:00 | Room C12.001  (Campus Scharnhorststr. 1, Lüneburg)

How Western is the concept of gender? Why is it an important question to discuss? And what does language have to do with all of this?

In this interactional workshop, we will learn how language affects our perception and interpretation of reality, why gender is so difficult to define and explain, and how our understanding of gender and its implications for our lives can be explained with postcolonial theory.
