Centre for Gender Research

Thursday seminar autumn 2017

The Thursday seminars are held a few Thursdays a month between 13.15 and 15.00 at the Centre for Gender Research, Villavägen 6.

The Thursday seminars bring together several different research areas; men and masculinities, body/corporeality, queer theory, and science are some themes that reflect the breadth of the research conducted at the Centre. We hope that you will find much of interest and that you will take the opportunity to participate in exciting and fruitful seminars. Lectures will be held according to the language of each title, some in Swedish and some in English.
