Habitus sensible approach to gender and diversity

This course was taught in German at the University of Vienna (in summer term 2021).


Students explore the concept of habitus sensibility. They advance their understanding of why it is important to consciously ask how to reach as many learners as possible. This includes reflecting on somatized notions and becoming aware of possible, unconscious moments of exclusion. For this purpose, students translate current research results in possible interventions.
