Gender research network “Kantti”

Gender research network “Kantti” is an interdisciplinary network uniting researchers who are interested in gender as historical, cultural or social concept, construction, and phenomenon. Our aim is to improve interdisciplinary discussion and communication at the University of Jyväskylä and beyond and to improve the awareness of gender research in different disciplines. Our research interests are various and involve widely different cultural and social themes. In our network gender is understood as social structure, category, identity, concept, narrative, representation and agency.

Network is coordinated by the faculty of humanities and social sciences but researchers from all disciplines and faculties at the University of Jyväskylä are welcome to join the network. You can find a list of our expert members here.
