This course addresses contemporary issues in gender relations and gender power in and around organisations and policy processes. It reviews developments in feminist and critical gender, postcolonial and intersectional scholarship on organisations, policy and policy-making. The lectures will include theoretical overviews as well as focused examples and case studies. This includes the puzzles and dilemmas of studies of policy frame analysis; the dynamics of advocacy and opposition related to gender equality policies and movements in a European context; the gendered and intersectional nature of policy; gender and sexuality in organisations and policy; men and masculinities in organisations; feminist organising; and organisational change in relation to gender equality work, and resistance to such work. Case studies drawn from state, business and NGO sectors include those on variations in notions of inequality/equality in different parts of the same organisation or institution, and gendered and intersectional dynamics in policy-making.
This course is directed both to doctoral students focusing on organisations and/or policy, and those researching other areas where organisational and policy issues may be relevant.

Structure of the course:
The course consists of three days of lectures and seminars. Students are asked to have completed course readings before sessions in Linköping.
The course will include two kinds of sessions: 1) lecture-discussion-sessions on the proposed readings. Course participants are expected to have read the relevant chapters/articles before the course.
2) group sessions with presentations of students' papers, where students are given the opportunity to present their doctoral research and receive comments from teachers and co-participants.
Participants will be divided into three working groups to make individual presentations and discuss research questions from their doctoral project.
Each of the three lecturers will have responsibility for one group each. Based on the research description, each participant is asked to make a presentation of her/his research project for 10-15 minutes, followed by 30 minutes for questions and discussion. All group participants are expected to read the papers of their fellow group members and be ready to give comments.
* See reading list.
* Paper (2-5 pages describing research problems related to the PhD project of the participant) to be sent to InterGender Managing Director Dr Björn Pernrud (Email: Bjorn.Pernrud@liu.se) AT THE LATEST TWO WEEKS BEFORE THE COURSE START; remember to mark it with your name and the course name.
* All participants are expected to read the papers of their fellow group members before the course and be ready to give comments in the group sessions.
* The students’ papers and some of the other readings for the course will be available to all the participants via our intra net. Books must be bought or borrow. More info on this will be given to registered participants.
* 15 pages to be handed in at the latest 3 months after the course; one copy should be sent to the teacher, who is going to evaluate it, and one to InterGender Managing Director Dr Björn Pernrud (Email: Bjorn.Pernrud@liu.se). The teacher has 3 months to evaluate the essay.
* The essay should strike a balance between addressing a theme, which have been part of course (lectures, discussions, reading material), and be relevant for the PhD research of the student.
* The essay should, moreover, be considered as an exercise in doing a written presentation to an academic readership, which is not familiar with the author's PhD research. It should constitute a whole and explain relevant contexts.
ACCREDITATION AND EXAMINATION
a) 7,5 ECTS Credits is given for active participation and a short paper, maximum 5 pages.
b) 15 ECTS Credits is given for active participation, + essay (evaluated as pass/fail). An essay should be of 10-15 pages. The selected topic shall be related to the course content and readings. The essay is to be sent to the teacher as well as to the academic coordinator no later than 3 months after the final day of the course.
