It offers a detailed introduction into gender and diversity through the specific lens of transculturality and transnationality, and covers a wide range of core topics related to gender and diversity studies dealing with questions of how knowledge on and terminologies of gender and diversity are being produced, translated, transferred, and put into practice globally. To this end, the School follows three main focal points: Gender, Difference and Access to Public Space; Gender, Memory and the Production of Alternative Knowledge and Gender and Diversity Knowledge in Public and Private Organisations.
