This course aims to promote awareness of diversity and to generate interest and curiosity as to what diversity really is about, and the ability (or inability) to perceive, feel and experience it. Where can it be found? In which practical issues and phenomena can you see a lack of diversity (to date) or a shift towards diversity? By looking at these areas, various forms of diversity will be dealt with and intersectionality will be addressed. By way of addressing present day examples e.g. political happenings, the course will show clearly that diversity is not simply a theoretical or political reality, but has to do with how we see, represent and structure society. In other words, diversity is not an objective phenomenon but socially constructed, a perspective from which we look at society and people. Hence what diversity is can differ enormously. In sum, the course aims to foster sensitivity to the complexity of the theme. Students will learn to distinguish between diversity as 'variety' and as a social-societal phenomenon that is always related to power and politics, and to processes of inclusion and exclusion.

Contact hours listed under a course description may vary due to the combination of lecture-based and independent work required for each course therefore, CEA's recommended credits are based on the ECTS credits assigned by VU Amsterdam. 1 ECTS equals 28 contact hours assigned by VU Amsterdam.
