Nordic Trends in Gender Studies - ReNEW Summer School
The ReNEW consortium and University of Iceland welcomes all PhD candidates and advanced MA Students in their last year in humanities or social sciences working on Nordic-related topics with an interest in gender issues to the first ReNEW summer school:
ReNEW (Reimagining Norden in an Evolving World) is a research hub established to enhance cooperation to develop new and path-breaking research about the Nordic region against the background of an increasingly challenging global context. Promoting mobility, exchange, high-level conferences, education, and outreach activities, it brings together six Nordic universities with world-wide connections. ReNEW Partners are University of Helsinki, University of Oslo, Södertörn University Stockholm, Aarhus University, Copenhagen Business School, and University of Iceland.
In collaboration with EDDA – Center of Excellence and the United Nations University Gender Equality Studies and Training (UNU-GEST) Programme, the first ReNEW Summer School will be held at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík, 15–24 May 2019, with the topic Nordic Trends in Gender Studies. Experts within the field will introduce students to four separate but interlinked pillars of current Nordic gender research: Intersectionality, migration and labour markets, post-colonialism, as well as trans issues and queer theory. The NORA Conference Border Regimes, Territorial Discourses and Feminist Politicswill take place in Reykjavík 22–24 May 2019, and is an integral part of summer school attendance.
