What it is about

People carry different identities in terms of their gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, economic status, geographic location, ability, disability, educational level etc. To gain a better understanding of the changing world, it is important to first understand yourself, the people around you and the narratives each individual carries based on their various identities.     

This course will explore different identities from the lens of gender and intersectionality.
