The Gender-EX School aims to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and tools to explore the ways in which gender is relevant to their own research projects. Special attention to intersectional approaches to SGDRC.

By the end of this 5-day course, participants will be sufficiently equipped to incorporate sophisticated gender analysis into their own research projects, independently of their discipline.

The course is designed to facilitate participation through a variety of interactive sessions. It will comprise a mix format of keynotes, seminars, workshops and case-studies. The continuity of these networks will be facilitated by further opportunities provided by future GenderEX activities, exchanges, and events.

*Gender School will be held in English. No admission fees required. Certificate of attendance will be given.
