Current activities (Spring 2024)

Lecture Series "Re-locating Gender and Diversity Studies: Transnational Perspectives"
The lecture series brings together critical perspectives on transcultural gender and diversity studies from different perspectives. It engages with new forms of knowledge production beyond traditional academic tracks and established canons while seeking to capture the asymmetrical transnational connectivities of gender and diversity studies as well as related policies. All lectures in this series are open to the public. We welcome participants from a variety of backgrounds, academic, activist, or otherwise.
The lecture series takes place online. You find the links to each lecture in the attached flyers below. Alternatively, you can send an email to helena.rust[at], stating that you wish to receive the link to the lectures and/or news on the upcoming lectures in this series into your inbox.
