About SKOK

The Centre for Women’s and Gender Research (SKOK) is an interdisciplinary research centre that aims to provide knowledge about these fields of research to all the faculties at the University of Bergen. SKOK’s main objective is to strengthen women’s and gender research at the university at large. SKOK aspires to function as a vital arena for researchers not only at our own university, but also to serve as a link to other research communities, both nationally and internationally. One of SKOK’s main goals is to secure a long term interdisciplinary competence building in this field of research. SKOK also offers a bachelor program in gender studies, a one-year program in gender studies and doctoral education within the field.

Exhibition at SKOK

Every semester, the Centre for Women's and Gender Research (SKOK), invites artists to exhibit their work in the seminar room at Ida Bloms house. This semester SKOK features work by Nadzeya Husakouskaya, SKOK PhD candidate, researcher and photographer from Belarus.
Colour of Protest is an art exploration into strategies of resistance, representation and belonging in post-Apartheid South Africa and post-Soviet Belarus. As a point of departure for critical reflection, Nadzeya Husakouskaya, takes their experience of witnessing Women's Marches against police brutality in Marikana, the mining area in North West, South Africa, in September 2012.
