  • Overview Gender Studies

  • In German-speaking areas (meaning higher education institutions in Germany, Switzerland and Austria), gender studies (understood as an umbrella concept for feminist and queer women’s and gender studies) is institutionalized in a variety of forms.

    Throughout the German-speaking world, institutions of higher education institutionalize gender studies (understood broadly as feminist, queer, women’s and gender studies) in a variety of forms.

    The primary forms are:

    - Centers

    - Degree programs

    - PhD and research programs

    - Professorships

    A diverse group of other academic and political networks, as well as databases, academic journals, and library collections, have contributed significantly to the establishment of gender studies in the German-speaking world.
