This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to study and analyze international relations from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

The goal is to examine the role of women in international relations, international security, conflict and peace through different approaches to the study of conflict and how it is understood. The course will consider both the strength and limitations of various disciplinary approaches.
The traditional approaches to international relations, international security, international conflict and peace reflect viewpoints consistent with masculine perspectives on power and security.

Themes for discussion will include gender, race, ethnicity, nationalism, state, community, conflict and peace.
