The conference highlights the gender research at Stockholm University across disciplinary boundaries. The purpose is to consolidate and strengthen gender research by increasing our knowledge of each other's research, both ongoing and future research plans. The conference will create synergies and open up for meetings and collaborations! The language of the conference will mainly be Swedish, but presentations can also be made in English.

Subject to availability, the conference is also open to those who do not want to participate with their own paper, but only listen.

Although the situation is uncertain with the current pandemic, we are hopeful that the vaccination has started before the summer. Therefore, the basis for our conference planning is that we can all attend and socialize together at the conference. However, if there is still a risk of a strong spread of infection this summer, we will propose another form of conference well in advance.
