Workpackages

The GRACE project will recruit, employ and provide advanced training for 15 ESRs who will enroll as doctoral candidates at the academic beneficiaries and work collaboratively to develop and hone innovative methods to research the production of cultures of gender equality. More specifically the 15 ESR projects will focus on a comprehensive set of historical and contemporary processes distributed across five specific sites – important spaces, places and events where cultures of gender equalities are produced, performed and contested by differently situated social agents.
 
 

Five sites form the core of our research and training Work Packages:

 
WP1 – Mediated cultures of gender equality

 

How has the ‘media’- from the historical development of print capitalism to the ongoing contemporary shift to digital and polymediated events – operated as a site for the production, contestation and disciplining of cultures of gender equality?

WP2 – Urban cultures of gender equality
In what ways has the ‘city’ in an urbanising, cosmopolitan Europe created eventful sites for the production, contestation and disciplining of cultures of gender equality?
WP3 – Intellectual and activist cultures of gender equality
How have intellectual and activist artefacts and praxis developed as sites for the production, contestation and disciplining of cultures of gender equality? 
WP4 – Textual and artistic cultures of gender equality
In what ways have the performative practices and artefacts of the humanities and sciences figured in the production, contestation and disciplining of cultures of gender equality?
WP5 – Employing cultures of gender equality
How can gender studies researchers’ creative and critical competencies be translated into innovative cultural practices which enhance gender equality in employability?
