Doctoral Workshop (Block Seminar)

Joanna Moszczyńska (U Regensburg)

Thursday, 10 February 2022 11:00
Friday, 11 February 2022 17:00

Interdisciplinary workshop aimed at doctoral and postdoctoral researchers as well as students who are developing a master's thesis that will incorporate gender and feminist theory.


February 10-11, 2022

The main objective of the workshop is for participants to develop their familiarity with concepts, methods and theories from feminist critique and gender studies, in order to demonstrate how they could be applied in individual research projects.

Drawing on theories and concepts, as well as specific case studies, we will work towards developing relevant methodological approaches. The focus will be on three areas, namely: ontology (theories of being and reality); epistemology (theories of knowledge production); and politics (relations and practices of power).

Please prepare the following in preparation for the workshop:

  • a short sketch of your ongoing project (PhD thesis, postdoc project, article in progress) - 1 page
  • a short comment outlining the importance of feminist or gender-oriented approaches to your project - around 1/2 page

There will also be readings made available in GRIPS ahead of the workshop.

Please register for the workshop via GSOSES by October 17 at graduiertenschule@ur.de.

This workshop will take place in English.
