11-PH-BA-SozUn-2dGender and global health inequalities (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)

weekly (starts in week: 1) Thu. 10:00 - 14:00 GRA2A 0050/60 (4 Teaching hours per week)

Social inequalities manifest in many forms within and between societies: in systematic differences in access to education, housing, employment and wealth, as well as in access to health care and other forms of social protection. Differences tend to emerge along particular dividing lines or between 'social status groups' which in turn can lead to discrimination. The impact of various social determinants on physical and mental health, both at the individual and collective level, is profound and should be understood as 'social determinants of health'. Social inequalities are therefore closely linked to health inequalities and this has huge implications for social justice in a society.

This seminar provides both a theory-based introduction to social determinants of health (part 1, theory) and a contextual analysis of the role(s) that gender plays as a social determinant (part 2, case study). We will examine constructs of gender in Global Health research and practice, analyze who profits and who is harmed by which attributions, and reflect on our own positionality as researchers and Public Health practitioners when designing, implementing and evaluating interventions that (also) address gender justice.

Course language is English and we will read English texts and watch English film excerpts, but you are always welcome to talk German in class.
