Gender 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’.

General 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.

The Gendered Dynamics of Power: A One-Day Conference
How does power continue to operate in a gendered way despite decades of feminist critique? The conference focuses especially on relational and organisational contexts, and deploys psychosocial and psychodynamic concepts and practices to advance understanding of what sustains and what might subvert these gendered dynamics.

The 9th European Feminist Research Conference - Sex & Capital
Sex & Capital will engage with recent feminist thinking on gender politics, economics and futures to ask questions such as: What are the different, sexualized forms of capital? What are the gendered dynamics and outcomes of barefaced capitalism? and How should we understand and reconceptualise material realities, embodiment and subjectivities? The 9th Conference invites scholars, students, policy makers and activists to gather and discuss and reflect upon these themes.
