I have produced several resources for fellow lecturers: a series of introductory lectures about feminism, and a gender theory syllabus for upper-undergraduate and postgraduate students. All are available freely to download, adapt and use – please also feel free to share them onwards with anyone else you think might find them helpful.
These lectures offer an introduction to feminist theory and politics. They cover four substantive topics: (De)constructing gender; Universalism and Intersectionality; (Re)producing gender; and Gender, Power and Violence. There is also a fifth lecture on How to Write an Essay. The lectures are all available as Prezis to download, adapt and use – access them here.
Gender Theory Syllabus
I have produced a thirteen-week syllabus on different aspects of gender and feminist theory, for upper-undergraduate and postgraduate students. This contains key and suggested readings and suggested preparation tasks and seminar activities. It can be downloaded in final format as a PDF here, and you can also download it as a Word document (if you wish to edit it yourself) here.
Fellow lecturers may also want to look at some of the material on my ‘resources for researchers‘ page, as it contains materials you may want to use with your dissertation students. These include downloadable infographics on ‘getting through your dissertation‘ and academic writing, alongside other things.
If you do use any of these resources, please consider making a voluntary donation to one of the following organisations, which I recommend (and donate to myself) to acknowledge my own significant debt to Black feminist theory and practice.
Sistah Space – a London-based organisation working with African heritage women and girls who have experienced domestic or sexual abuse.
Survived and Punished – a US-based organisation which aims to free criminalised survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
The Consent Workshop – an organisation located in Lagos, Abuja, Toronto, and St Vincent and The Grenadines which delivers youth education aiming to disrupt rape culture.
