Jubilee 1978-2018

Department of Gender Studies is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a year full of events!

In 1978, Forum for Women Researchers and Women’s Research Studies was established at Lund University by a network of researchers and doctoral students. Throughout 2018, we are celebrating 40 years of feminist research and education with a range of open events reflecting the postdisciplinarity of important feminist conversations.
