Wednesday, January 25, 2017, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The Department of Gender Studies cordially invites you to the roundtable discussion, in the framework of the Erasmus+ project GeSt: “Gender studies curriculum: A step for Democracy and Peace in EU-neighbouring countries with different traditions”:

Higher Education Policies and the Odds of Teaching Gender Studies


Andrea Pető, CEU, Budapest

Erzsébet Barát, University of Szeged

Beáta Nagy, Corvinus University, Budapest

Anikó Gregor, ELTE University, Budapest

Vassiliki Deliyanni-Kouimtzi, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece

Our guests from various Hungarian universities and a Greek university discuss institutional support and difficulties concerning establishing and running gender studies master programs, the higher education policies supporting and impeding the institutionalization of gender studies, and the successes and failures of gender studies program development and management within such institutional and policy frameworks.

The GeSt project aims to create new competences and new thinking in gender equality and improve education in gender studies by updated MA Programs in Social and Behavioral Sciences and to promote the convergence of the education system in EU-neighboring countries with European state education systems.      

The project is supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
