Transnational Perspectives in Gender Studies

TraGS is a participatory learning tool

and a resource for students and teachers. With the aim to develop transnational perspectives in Gender Studies a diverse team worked on introducing you to Indian, (South) African, Islamic and Transnational Feminisms and you find modules on those four topics. We then also go beyond these repositories and include two modules on cross cutting and exemplary themes: forced migration and gender-based violence.  You find all this in ‘Content’. Additionally, we provide a ‘Framework’—looking at glossaries, archives, didactics as some elements to discuss and to further develop the discourse: What are transnational perspectives in Gender Studies? Is it possible to go beyond national and cultural positionings and standpoints?

There are six modules: Indian Feminisms, Islamic Feminisms, (South) African Feminisms, Transnational Feminisms, Gender Based Violence, and Gendered Perspectives in Forced Migration. For each, you will find a series of presentations/lectures giving you a systematic introduction. These are complemented by additional resources that enable and encourage you to actively pursue the enquiries, individually or in student teams.

To develop transnational perspectives we suggest a number of tools: a diverse team, interactive peer learning, multi-sited analysis and more. You find our reflections on this in METHODOLOGY. To encourage your own enquiries, we also include GLOSSARIES and reflections on language and multilinguality and an annotated list of digital ARCHIVES that cover gender studies and women’s/queer movements globally resp. are based in the gloabl south. 

TraGS is a resource for students and teachers. Students can benefit from our content as an aid or additional learning material, including work packages on Islamic, Indian, African, and International Feminisms. Teachers and professors can benefit from our didactics materials, such as our Framework and Teacher Toolbox, and information about feminist approaches to teaching, different activities, and reflections on teaching methods.
