PhD students with different disciplinary backgrounds come to together in the Radboud Gender & Diversity PhD seminar. The seminar offers them a chance to present their work to peers, give and receive feedback and gain useful skills to complete their PhD trajectory and further their academic career.

There are 12 annual meetings, 3 of which are tutorial sessions.

PhD students from any disciplinary background who use and intersectional lens in their research or focus on gender are welcome to join.

PhD course:  Gender and Research Methodologies in Social Sciences

The biannual interdisciplinary course on gender methods serves as an introduction to research methods in interdisciplinary gender studies. Classical and modern debate on the use of qualitative and quantitative research methods from a gender perspective.


Students will be able to gain a better understanding of feminist epistemologies and methodologies. They will be able to critically reflect upon the choice and application of research methods from a gender perspective in their own PhD research.


The course takes two full days, with an alternation of lectures, discussion of literature and discussion of assignments made by students. The first day will focus on qualitative research methods, the second day on quantitative research methods. Both days will take the different phases in the research process into consideration, namely design, research question, operationalisation, choice of methods for accessing sources, data collection, data-analysis and interpretation and reporting. In order to receive a certificate participants must have actively participated in both days, read the assigned literature, written two short assignments on their own method selection, and actively participated in the discussions.
