The Centre for Gender Research celebrates 40 years of gender research and education with a jubilee conference!

It is just over 40 years since research and education within the field of gender studies found a home at Uppsala University, and 20 years since the Centre for Gender Research was established in its current form – and this we are celebrating with a Jubilee conference!

Registration for the conference is now closed. Read more about the conference on our webpage.
