Lecture Series

For some years now, the departments and central institutes, working in cooperation with the local women’s representatives and gender equality officers, have been designing and organizing an increasing number of lecture series that examine specific topics in these individual disciplines from a gender perspective.

Creating Public Awareness

Gender studies is supported in individual disciplines through financing from agreements on goals or performance-based funding from the departments (previously incentive funding). Lectures and presentations given by well-known visiting scholars and scientists are aimed at arousing students’ interest and sensitizing them to gender topics. Announced as university lecture series or special interdisciplinary lecture series, these events also reach the broader university public.
