Gender studies unit
Welcome to the Gender Studies Unit! This Unit constitutes a dynamic environment of research, collaboration and teaching at all levels – from introductory level up to PhD-studies. We offer cutting-edge research and creative pedagogical approaches in a setting kept together by a critical approach to gender studies as a field of teaching and research.
The Gender Studies Unit is a creative environment with an openness for novel theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches, bringing together researchers and teachers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds across the social sciences and humanities. Members of the Unit explore questions of immediate interest in contemporary academic and societal debates, in global as well as local contexts, aspiring to reach a broader societal impact to strengthen equality. We also seek to support possibilities for exchange across professional and sectorial borders, with a deep-seated engagement in questions of (trans)national justice and social change.
