About us

The doctoral network gender and queer was created to counteract the isolation of doctoral projects in the genuinely interdisciplinary field of gender and queer studies. We see ourselves as an open forum that offers all doctoral students at the University of Cologne the opportunity to pursue their gender-specific research in a fruitful exchange. On the one hand, the aim is to extend one's own perspectives to those of other departments and faculties, and on the other to sound out the interfaces and synergy effects in terms of content and methodology. Last but not least, we also want to support the diverse efforts at the University of Cologne to increase the visibility and self-image of gender and queer studies at the level of doctoral students.

The network is organized by doctoral students and designed by the participants. In the context of regular network meetings, own dissertation projects are discussed and basic texts and terminologies are developed; in addition, we organise thematic workshops to which external guests are invited.

If you are interested in participating in the network, we expressly encourage you to contact us.
