Freie Universität Berlin

Service Navigation


One indicator of the extent to which gender studies have become established is the integration of this field of research into the denomination of, or the call for applicants for, a professorship. Because many professorships at the universities in Berlin were eliminated in the course of the recent budget cuts, the situation has changed for gender studies professorships as well, but without there being any reduction in the absolute number of these professorships at Freie Universität as a result. The establishment of the junior professorships has created new opportunities to introduce the topic into disciplines that have thus far been rather more resistant to it. The possibility of citing gender studies as a desired emphasis in the calls for applicants for these positions is also utilized.
