Interdiciplinary gender research

The main aim for the program in interdiciplinary gender research is to challenge established conventions of gender, and generate new knowledge about how gendered power relations affect identities, representations, institutions and practices.

The reasearchers studying gender and identity have two overarching research questions:

How is gender participating in the constitution of identities, representations, institutions and practices? 

And how does gender affect the way we act and the way we perceive ourselves and other?

The research program for interdisciplinary gender research is a platform for leading scholars in the field of gender and equality at the University of Stavanger.
