Since 2001, the University-wide Women's Representatives have been organizing interdisciplinary lectures, conferences, and excursions with close connections to gender studies with the keyword "Gender Research Forum". Through this initiative, they want to offer female researchers interdisciplinary opportunities to exchange ideas about gender research, to network, and to present their own projects. A wide variety of topics—from matriarchal theories like male friendships in the Middle Ages to the gender differences in behavioral problems in elementary school—have been presented through numerous lectures since the forum first started.

Forum events take place during the semester and are open to all interested parties.

Would you like to organize a gender-related event?

Guest lectures, short events, workshops, debates, discussions, conferences, and panel discussions are all possible forum events. We are fully supportive of events and topics in English. Researchers can also join forces with each other to propose an event together. We would be more than happy to talk to you about support opportunities and to review proposals for lectures, as well as suggestions and ideas for the organization of the gender forum. Just send a short email to the women's office.
