The diary will be made up of nine weekly reflections.

The first diary entry should be called ‘Reflexivity’, reflecting on the ways

in which an intersectional theoretical lens and personal experiences can be used

together to understand and explain people’s relative privilege and power in

particular contexts. You can write about your own personal experiences and/or

the personal experiences of others (marginalised groups of people or people you

know as long as they are happy for you to write about them – you must use a

pseudonym) and/or the biographical details of public figures. Please note that

the readings for this week have been selected to allow us to think about

reflexivity as a core tool of intersectional analyses of privilege and power.

the readings for this week have been selected to allow us to think about

reflexivity as a core tool of intersectional analyses of privilege and power. You need to draw on the readings but you DO NOT need to summarise/describe

the readings. By highlighting the core argument of one of the readings, selecting

quotes/arguments that are particularly meaningful to you/stand out to you,

and explaining why in relation to your own personal experiences and/or the

personal experiences of others.

By relating the module material to the geo-political (i.e. global politics,

current events) and connecting the personal in (1) to the political, writing

about how your reading of the week’s material has helped you to reflect on

your own and/or others’ attitudes, privileges and experiences.

: ‘Closing Reflections’. Reflecting on how you feel, how your thinking has

changed, and what you have learned about yourself at the end of the module, reassessing the way(s) you approached writing the reflections from weeks 2-9. Ensure that you reference the readings in full at the end of each self-reflection. The

references will NOT be counted in the overall word count.

You do not have to include reflections on your own attitudes and privileges in each

weekly reflection, but overall your reflections should show that you have thought about

these things deeply and critically.

Write up 300-350 word reflections for each week including both sections. You may wish to also use external readings, if that will be easier.

Topics and descriptions of each week’s topics have been attached along with preferred readings. Aim to use 1 reference per each week’s reflection.
