For PhD/ MA students from various disciplinary backgrounds interested in gender and sexuality, right-wing politics, Europe and globalization

The master class is followed by a public lecture. Both events examine what anti-gender movements can tell us about global gender politics and the current international regimes promoting gender equality values. The focus lies on anti-gender movements in Europe and its possible interpretative and theoretical frameworks. The aim is to analyse the state of anti-gender movements in Europe and to assess the impacts of counter strategies by progressive actors. The lecture argues that anti-gender movements are a new phenomenon in European politics which requires new methods to study and different counter strategies from progressive forces.
