Gender Studies

Gender Studies is an inter-, cross- and multidisciplinary field of studies and research that challenges traditional disciplinary paradigms. The basic task of Gender Studies is to plan, provide and develop gender responsible and norm critical teaching and research. Gender Studies and its research group is located in the Faculty of Education. Teaching is arranged in collaboration with various teachers and researchers from different Faculties. Gender Studies serves the whole university and it is available for students from all the Faculties of the University of Oulu. Research and development collaboration is carried out within the university but also nationally and internationally by taking part to Nordic and European networks and by creating partnerships also more widely.
