Undergraduate Module Descriptor
SSIM900: Contemporary Debates in Security, Conflict and Justice
This module descriptor refers to the 2018/9 academic year.
The unit will be taught in three intensive days split into thematic sessions. Below is an indicative list but may be subject to change:
Session 1 (1 day): Introduction to the pathway; Violence
Session 2 (2 days): Ethnicity; Gender
Session 3 (2 days): Human rights; Governance and sovereignty
A typical workshop day will include:
• Introductory session mapping the broad contours of the topic;
• Different disciplinary perspectives presented through lecturers from a range of disciplines across the DTC partners;
• Facilitated seminar/workshop to debate particular issues from an interdisciplinary perspective including, where appropriate, presentations from existing PhD researchers; and,
• Concluding session
All students will be expected to attend in person; virtual learning is not commensurate with the small group expected for this unit. Lecturers will be encouraged to attend in person but, where necessary, may deliver their presentations virtually.
