During this research seminar we aim to share our perspectives related to processes of gendered categorizing. Categorizing is the process of making differences between people, between identities, functions and activities, competences and behaviours. Categories are always created, even when treated as if they were neutral, natural or universal. Such categorizations for people refer to gender, and to other existing (historically rooted) social groups (based on age, religion, ethnicity, nationality/migrant status, class, sexual orientation, marital/family status, and/or disability).uring this seminar we aim to share different disciplinary perspectives on research of forms of categorizing in society that are gendered (linked to the distinctions between men and women, masculinity and femininity), in all their intersectional forms. We will discuss how gendered categories come about, how they gather or loose definitional power, and what the impact of these processes is on gender (in)equality.
Op 9 mei 2017 organiseerde Radboud Gender & Diversity i.s.m. Radboud Reflects en LUX het evenement 'Wie is er bang voor feminisme?' Het is weer hip je feminist te noemen en daarvoor uit te komen. Moderne feministen zijn niet meer de boze activistische vrouwen met okselhaar, maar strijders van allerlei pluimage die samen met mannen strijden voor de gelijkheid tussen man en vrouw. Maar is feminisme eigenlijk nog wel nodig? Luister naar monologen uit het theaterstuk Holy F en de visies van feminisme-experts.
On 15 February 2017 the lecture 'Feminist articulations: Gender, Sexuality and Nationalism in a New Feminist Landscape', by Clare Hemmings, professor of feminist theory at the London School of Economics, took place. It was organized by Radboud Gender & Diversity Studies in collaboration with the Graduate School for Humanities, as part of the Radboud Gender & Diversity Lectures.
