The Net­work

I was born in the scope of the GEN­DERCIT project, funded by the Peo­ple Pro­gramme (Marie Curie Actions) of the Euro­pean Union’s Sev­enth Frame­work Pro­gramme (FP7/​20072013/​), involv­ing sev­eral insti­tu­tions: Uni­ver­si­dad Pablo de Ola­vide, Seville (Spain) (coor­di­na­tor), Uni­ver­sity of Flo­rence (Italy), Uni­ver­sity of Paris 8 (France), Insti­tute of Social Sci­ences, Uni­ver­sity of Lis­bon (Por­tu­gal), Uni­ver­sity of Cuyo, Men­doza (Argentina), Uni­ver­sity of Salta (Argentina), El Cole­gio de la Fron­tera Norte (Mex­ico), Cen­tro UNESCO de Ceuta (Spain) and Uni­ver­si­dad de Granada (Spain). My name is Gen­der­mundus Net­work — Per­ma­nent Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary research and train­ing net­work on Gen­der Studies.

My main objec­tive is to estab­lish a col­lab­o­ra­tive net­work of researchers from a range of dis­ci­pli­nary back­grounds who share an inter­est and develop research on Gen­der Stud­ies, offer­ing a web plat­form for dis­cus­sion, pro­mot­ing reg­u­larly joint research projects and sup­port­ing inter­na­tional mul­ti­lat­eral train­ing programs.

My web-​page is a place where the most impor­tant research out­comes of the GEN­DERCIT project will be pre­sented; a space of dis­cus­sion for early researchers in mobil­ity which will be opened to other early researchers in the part­ners’ insti­tu­tions or in other insti­tu­tions; a space for project plan­ning, where researchers inter­ested in prepar­ing projects on Gen­der issues will be able to meet and to pro­pose new projects and a space to present train­ing activ­i­ties in Gen­der Studies.
