Research Platform Gender Studies:
Identities – Discourses – Transformations
The Platform offers an interdisciplinary forum for the study of gender relations based on a pluralist approach to methods. The aims are to increase our capacity to research and understand gender and to promote awareness of its relevance in historic, economic, political, social and scientific contexts. The Platform supports a Master program and runs a series of (international) academic events, including a Public Lecture series.
- strengthening Women’s, Gender, and Feminist Studies at the University of Innsbruck through better networking and intensified communication;
- improved accessibility to international research and to the international women’s movement;
- increased visibility and availability of our research results, thus contributing scientific input which would support a gender democratic transformation of society.
