Organisation profile

We conduct interdisciplinary problem-oriented gender studies within a diversity perspective. The research centre is a meeting place for students, researchers and practitioners who are interested in interdisciplinary problem-oriented gender studies. The activities of the centre are open to all interested stakeholders, internally at Roskilde University as well as externally. We offer courses in gender theory as well as supervision and other teaching activities that include gender and diversity perspectives.

Four purposes

  • To offer a community for gender and diversity researchers at RUC in which to discuss and qualify our research and research applications as well as develop new courses and other teaching activities.
  • To host open activities and evens concerning current gender issues at which we present RUC-based research and engage in dialogue with relevant external research environments as well as with a wide array of stakeholders.
  • To create a meeting place for students who are interested in gender and diversity, offering those students opportunities for dialogue with researchers and teachers as well as the possibility to present their own projects.
  • To promote equality and diversity – at RUC, in the Danish context and internationally.

You can participate in discussions pertaining to teaching and learning from the perspectives of gender and diversity, and you can become involved in course development.
