Gender is a key category in human relations and therefore also in science as a 'business' which is done by people in a specific social and cultural context. But does gender mean? How is it related e.g. to scientific objectives, to the production of facts but also to individual careers and interactions in the workplace? In the workshop we will work out an understanding of gender which extends the everyday knowledge of gender and link it to the questions above.
Issues on gender - like the question of the interdependence of bodies and 'culture', human rights, masculinities and micro politics - are inspiring, sometimes challenging but worth thinking about.
