Thursday seminars

The Centre for Gender Research has a seminar series on Thursdays, open for all interested in gender and gender research. 

The Thursday seminars reflect the breath of gender research and touch upon different research areas. The seminars aim to create cross-disciplinary meetings between researchers, between disciplines, and between researchers and students.

This semester's seminars are held at the Centre for Gender Research at the dates listed below, 13:15–15:00 (apart from one – 22 September – which is held online).
