In gender studies, such critique continues to develop, and reflexivity is often a taken-for-granted aspect of the research. However, Gender research is an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary field. This raises particular questions around choices and uses of research methods; the long history of critique also foregrounds the responsibility of the researcher.
The summer school will highlight the particular challenges in gender research by foregrounding four areas:
The summer school is open to PhD students in gender studies and PhD students in other disciplines whose projects have a gender perspective. Participants must be enrolled at oneof the U4 partner universities. MA students may apply but priority will be given to PhD students. Maximum number of participants: 16 (4 per partner university).
Participants are expected to read assigned literature and submit a short paper linked to their PhD project and relevant to the theme of the summer school in advance of the course. Course credits (7.5 ECTS) are awarded by the student's home university upon request.
