Six times a year the centre for gender and equality arranges a forum for gender equality which presents exciting and relevant research on gender and equality in an easily understandable and accessible manner. The forum is open to all who are interested in this topic.
The first part of the forum consists of research presentations and the time after lunch is set aside for discussions. It is our intention that the forum should function as an informal and scholarly exciting meeting place where researchers and practitioners from the field of gender and equality may initiate cooperation and establish networks. Hopefully the forum will also contribute to strengthening the knowledge base of the gender and equality work that is carried out in the region.
Much of the time at the forum is devoted to the dialogue between the presenters and the audience. This is a way to make the forum into a meeting place between researchers and the field of practice.
The forums include themes which lie within an extended concept of equality. Even though there is a need for emphasis on gender equality in the Agder –region, it is also important to increase our knowledge of other grounds for discrimination as for instance ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and disability.
Please let us know if there are themes that YOU wish to know more about!
The gender equality forums are arranged on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 11am – 1pm. An invitation will be published in advance on our web pages and will also be disseminated through the centre newsletter.
