Feminist Lunch talks at University of Copenhagen


The Coordination for Gender Research invites to four Feminist Lunch Talks this autumn.

Four lunch talks at the University of Copenhagen will this autumn put focus on feminist aspects of themes like big data, gender diversity and girls in STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, mathematics).

The Feminist Lunch Talks will all be online with a Zoom link sent to the participants.

It is free to participate, but with registration required for each event. Each event has a limit of 30 participants.
