Centre for Gender and Culture
The aim of the Centre for Gender and Culture is to coordinate the gender related educational and research activities at the Corvinus University of Budapest, and to connect our university to the national and international scientific network of the discipline.
The Centre would like to play an intermediating role for scholars working at various departments and organizational units within the CUB and at other research and higher education institutions in Hungary. In this sense the Centre is inter-institutional and interdisciplinary.
We regard the institutionalization of our international network to be crucial. We would like to take a more active role in the education carried out in foreign languages at our University, and to participate in the international scientific community.
We would also like to build on the PhD students interested in gender studies. Our prime focus is to involve the participants of the PhD programs at our university, but we would also like to establish forums run by our PhD students that would bring in interested students from PhD programs accredited at other universities.
In spring 2022, the Gender Centre will again organise a conference to highlight the complex research activities taking place at the University.
The Centre for Gender and Culture Research was established in 2001 on the initiative of Miklós Hadas and Beáta Nagy. During the 2000s, students of Corvinus University of Budapest also had the opportunity to study a minor in Gender and Cultural Studies. The Centre also organised important interdisciplinary gender conferences in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
