About the Coordination for Gender Research

The main tasks of the Coordination for Gender Research are:

  • To develop gender scholarship as an inter- and transdisciplinary field. This especially involves the integration of gender research into intersecting fields such as cultural research and techno-science. Simultaneously, the goal is to promote dialogue and networks between different areas, tendencies and perceptions within the field of gender research.
  • To initiate research strategies in gender research both nationally and internationally. The goal is to push gender research to the fore and make it an obvious part of an innovative university and research profile.
  • To communicate the results of gender research to the scientific communities and highlight the field both in society and the media.

The Co-ordinator is Ph.D. Hilda Rømer Christensen.
