Doctoral Workshop with Joanna Moszczyńska: Feminist and Gender Theoretical Approaches in Research

| Doctoral Program

This doctoral workshop also includes two public lectures

February 10-11, 2022

This interdisciplinary workshop, organized by CITAS postdoc Joanna Moszczyńska, is aimed at doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, as well as students who are developing a master's thesis that will incorporate gender and feminist theory. The main objective of the workshop is for participants to develop their familiarity with concepts, methods and theories from feminist critique and gender studies, in order to demonstrate how they could be applied in individual research projects.

Drawing on theories and concepts, as well as specific case studies, we will work towards developing relevant methodological approaches. The focus will be on three areas, namely: ontology (theories of being and reality); epistemology (theories of knowledge production); and politics (relations and practices of power).

There will also public lectures as part of the event on each day, supported by the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies (GS OSESUR). To gain access to the lectures please follow this link to the Zoom room: Meeting-ID: 677 7935 7328
