Lois MacNay reflects on her first encounters: – My first visit as Professor II to the Centre for Gender Research at Oslo University was both enjoyable and intellectually enriching.
The holidays are here, but STK is still buzzing with activity: the spring semester is being finalized, international students are taught about gender equality in the Nordic countries, and final adjustments are made for the autumn semester.
Lois McNay was recently appointed Professor II at the Centre for Gender Research in collaboration with the Faculty for Social Science. She will be an asset to gender research at UiO, but also to research at the intersection between feminist, social and political theory more broadly.
– We will explore how increasing levels of diversity in the personnel of Nordic security forces relate to changing perceptions of trust and security, says Ulla-Britt Lilleaas, professor at Centre for Gender Research.
It was a unique opportunity when a group of Egyptologists came together for the second collaborative workshop on Gender Studies and Egyptology at the Centre for Gender Research in Oslo.
The main objective of this two-year workshop project is to expose and expand current debates on diversity issues and challenges to democratic participation in the Nordic region, by putting the spotlight on “identity politics”, says Elisabeth Lund Engebretsen, Senior lecturer at Centre for Gender Research and project leader of “Transforming identities”.
