Delve into practical and theoretical aspects of feminist and queer theory while conducting field research in the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland.

Are you curious about how gender and race/ethnicity are experienced and understood in Western and East Central Europe in comparison to the US? Are you ready to explore the challenges and insights of the latest feminist and queer theories cross-culturally? Have you wondered what you can do to effectively contest patriarchy, homophobia and racism and transform the world for the better? Since 1984, Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe has offered students a unique opportunity to explore feminist and queer theory in practice across Western and East Central Europe. Interaction with academics, politicians, activists, and homestay hosts in Utrecht, Berlin, Prague and Krakow encourages comparative approaches to independent research projects.
