i København og Beijing, med temaet Gender and Body Dynamics. Chinese and Danish Perspectives.
ved Peking University, 30-31 august, 2012: Gender Dynamics in the 20th century. Exchanges between China and Denmark. Forslag til workshop med fokus på køn udsprang oprindeligt af kontakter i IARU alliancen, hvor både KU og Peking Universitet er medlemmer, men blev først mulig at gennemføre med støtte fra SDC i 2012. Workshoppen og sommerskolen på Peking Universitet viser, at der godt kan bygges netværk op nedefra i IARU alliancens regi. Og tillige, at modellen med fordel kunne inkluderes og faciliteres i det formelle IARU samarbejde på KU.
Koordinationen har søgt og opnået finansiering fra Velux Fonden til en gæsteprofessor i foråret 2014, Professor Dr. Aihwa Ong
