GRACE – Gender & Cultures of Equality in Europe

The aim of the GRACE – Gender and Cultures of Equality in Europe project is to systematically investigate the cultural production of gender equalities within Europe.

Extending the success of GEMMA, the Erasmus Mundus ‘Masters of Excellence’ in Women’s and Gender Studies, the central objective of GRACE is to become the programme of reference for innovative interdisciplinary doctoral training for early career researchers.

GRACE draws on innovative and interdisciplinary methodologies to investigate an under-examined aspect of those processes, namely the production of cultures of equality that underpin, enable and constrain those changing policy and legislative frameworks.

Our methodological approach understands culture as neither normative frameworks nor ways of representing the world, but more fundamentally as the process through which people create the worlds they inhabit.

The GRACE project is providing advanced training for 15 ESRs who are researching the production of cultures of gender equality across five specific sites where cultures of gender equalities are produced and contested by differently situated social agents.

1 Innovative Training Network

15 Early Stage Researchers

8 partner organizations in 6 EU countries

5 workpackages
Our objectives are to advance knowledge and understanding, enhance the training and career development of gender studies ESRs and increase the potential impacts of scholarly studies of cultures of equalities by:
