How does the spread of Covid-19 affect my studies? 

Following University and National recommendations we are preparing for campus teaching for the fall and therefore, we advise international students to apply for residence permits and take other steps so that they have every chance of being in Sweden for the start of the semester.

We also recognize that this is a difficult and uncertain time and therefore are planning for digital teaching options for courses offered by the Centre for Gender Research during the first period of the term (August-October). “Gender Theory” and “Gender, Science and Nature” will be taught via Zoom, while the Methods course will be taught on campus with the option of participating via Zoom. “Intersectionality and Power”, which starts in November, will be taught on campus, with no option of participating digitally.

A limited number of copies of the course litterture can be found at the Karin Boye-library at the English Park campus. 

Where is the Centre for Gender Research? 

The Centre for Gender Research is located on Villavägen 6, in the botanical garden, behind the Orangery. The Centre has its own teaching room on the ground floor, the Karin Westman Berg room (KWB) that is suitable for smaller lectures and seminars. Larger lectures are normally held in one of the bigger lecture halls on the English Park campus.
