The last decades have seen the emergence of a new field of gender research and gender studies in academic research and teaching. Gender discourses, -relations as well as -identities are scrutinised in disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary contexts and thereby become the subject of historical and empirical analyses, deconstructivist reading and/or normative-emancipative reflection.

The CENTER INTERDISCIPLINARY GENDER STUDIES INNSBRUCK (CGI) rejects any form of individual and structural discrimination. This applies in particular to discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, ideological, religious, race or national identity and social class. The research platform is actively committed to an inclusive society free of discrimination, which enables all members to develop and participate freely.
