What is your study programme?

Recent years have seen increasing polarisation in social, political, cultural, medical and legal debates. These debates also take place within universities in various ways. Researchers in gender and sexuality studies are able to play an important role in shedding a light on these divides and perhaps even help lessen them.

With this conference, the participating organisations want to encourage scholars from various disciplines to come together, (further) develop important insights and make meaningful connections across disciplines.

Connecting Places and Spaces

The theme of this year’s symposium is ‘Connecting Places and Spaces’. All research that adresses gender and sexuality in a broad way will be considered, but there will be a primary interest in work that focuses on gender, sexuality and queersness and:

  • Thinks beyond rigid academic disciplines and approaches
  • Transcends national borders
  • Discusses categorisation and/or idenity
  • Connects or disentangles past, present and future
  • Provides critical perspectives on bridging gaps between research and practice

Contribute through your research

  • Presentation of an empirical or theoretical paper (20 minutes presentation with 10 minutes for questions)
