Graduate School in Gender, Humanities and Digital Cultures

The Graduate School in Gender, Humanities and Digital Cultures explores how gender matters in digital cultural and academic contexts, and teaches digital methods and research skills fit for the labour market of the 21st century, while also strengthening gender humanities research.

The Graduate School in Gender, Humanities and Digital Cultures (GENHDI) is partially funded by the Swedish Research Council and is a collaboration between  the Centre for Gender Research, Uppsala University (coordinator), the Department of Ethnology, History of Religion and Gender Studies (ERG), Stockholm University and  the School of Culture and Education, Södertörn University. The research school also collaborates with the Uppsala Centre for Digital Humanities

Nine PhD students (three per university) are active within the research school. All PhD students jointly participate in three obligatory PhD courses, designed to teach both theoretical frameworks and practical digital skills, provided by the Graduate School partners: 

  • Digital Feminist Theory 7.5 credits (Södertörn)
  • Digital Ethnography 7.5 credits (Stockholm)
  • Cultural Analytics 7.5 credits (Uppsala)

In addition PhD students also take other courses, of a total of 60 credits, relevant to their studies and as prescribed by the institutions where they are enrolled.
