|Course Title||Gender, Nation and Citizenship|
|Institution||Tbilisi State University|
The course "Gender, Nations and Citizenship" is for the first grade MA degree Psychologist students. The course aims to show gender studies' interdisciplinary nature, its political, economical and cultural context. The course contains 14 classes and an exam for 30 students. The course will analyze the roles of gender and sexuality in political life and national awareness. I expect students will achieve a systematical knowledge in this field and as a result they should be able to conduct specialized researches by their own.
Methods of Instruction and Learning
In my view, in order to get students fully comprehend learning material it is necessary to make lectures interactive. This curriculum is the first trial of discussing the above mentioned issues among the students. That is why the course might include 10-15 minuets long class discussions at the end of the each class.
Students will also be provided with reading material in the field, for each lecture. They will prepare one individual essay and one group research. At the end of the course there will be an exam.
The course is the first attempt to gain an understanding of the important intersections of Gender, Nationality and Citizenship.
