Foundational Questions in Gender and Sexuality Research


The research group Foundational problems in gender and sexuality research is an interdisciplinary and interfaculty research group for academic staff at the University of Bergen with an interest in the fundamental issues within gender and sexuality research.

The group meets once a month and discusses recent developments within gender and sexuality theory, jointly reads texts and presents and discusses their own research projects and publications in relation to the discipline's foundational problems. The group is also an arena for the development of new research projects. The group is a key element within the training of researchers for PhDs within the field of gender and sexuality research.

The research group is led by Associate Professor Kari Jegerstedt.
