Thursday seminars

The Centre has a seminar series on Thursdays, 13.15–15.00 for all those interested in gender and gender research. Due to the spread of covid-19, we will be holding all our seminars this autumn semester as webinars. 

The Thursday seminars touch upon several different research areas, reflecting the breath of gender research. The seminars also aim to create cross-disciplinary meetings between researchers and students. 

Open for all!
