Gender Studies Seminar Series in Methodologies

Gender Studies Seminar Series in Methodologies is a series of webinars hosted by the Department of Gender Studies during 2021.

During these seminars we invite scholars who, in different ways, discuss some key issues of feminist methodologies. Among these issues are: research politics and ethics, significance and forms of the engaged scholarship in our times and resulting methodological dilemmas as well as methods of analysis with a special focus on narratives. The series also offers an opportunity to bring to the fore some ongoing methodological discussions that the researchers at the department engage in.
