Rainbow colours reflected in water

The research group Foundational Questions 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 research group is led by Kari Jegerstedt, Head of Centre at the Centre for Women's and Gender Studies (SKOK).

The group meets at SKOK's seminar room twice 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 members meet face to face and not digitally.

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.
