Centre for Gender Research
- Crossroads of knowledge
THE CENTRE FOR GENDER RESEARCH is a dynamic and productive
research environment where transgressive encounters between cultural, social
and biological understandings of sex and gender has become a characteristic and
we have in this way come a long way to pursuing research in all fields.
The researchers at the Centre for Gender Research have their background in
various disciplines in the faculties of the humanities, social sciences, natural
sciences, and medicine. Together we represent a great variety of competences and
areas of specialisations. The research at the Centre for Gender Research covers a
number of fields of research and active research groups.
Autumn 2015
We also provide a broad educational base where the students get to encounter
gender research from mainly the humanities and social sciences but also from the
natural sciences. For English speaking students we offer courses on advanced level.
Through transdisciplinary efforts, events, and conversations, the Centre for
Gender Research transgresses traditional organisational and knowledge
boundaries. The Centre offers a unique and vibrant university wide meeting place
for scholars and students in gender research.

breadth of the research conducted at the Centre. Together with Folkuniversitetet and Reginateatern we also
arrange popular scientific lunch lectures. This series of lectures are called Genuslunch and are held four times
