Roskilde, DenmarkGender and Diversity—Travelling Concepts across Time and Space
Any field of research has key analytical concepts, including gender studies. In this course
some of the key analytical concepts are identified, their history is illustrated and their
applicability discussed. Concepts often become fashionable – and salient - and turn into
fast travelling concepts. However, analytical notions are also situated in space which has
been shown for the concept of ‘class’ and recently ‘intersectionality’.

Sundvolden hotell, NorwayGeneral course 2014: Theoretical positions in Norwegian gender studies
Which theoretical positions do we find in Norwegian gender studies today? How do various scholars use the concept of gender in their own research? Are the distinctions between them related to discipline, research questions and/or belonging to different generations in gender studies? With this course, we wish to draw up a map of the actual state of the field, contribute to furthering reflection on our own research practice, and invite an open, exciting and constructive dialogue between different positions in gender studies.
