Politics & Gender, Diversity & Equality

 


The first Gender Chair in Salzburg

The professorship in Politics & Gender, Diversity & Equality was established in March 2020 – as the first professorship of Gender Studies at the PLUS and the Land Salzburg. Internationally, this Gender Chair is unique in its explicit intersectional focus, its methodological pluralism (and esp. its emphasis on quantitative methods), its strong international orientation and the transdisciplinary approach to teaching and research. As the only professorship enshrined in our university’s constitution, its significance is described in the university’s development plan and highlighted in the context of its cooperation with the state and city of Salzburg. The newly established chair represents and promotes Gender Studies (Research & Teaching) at the PLUS.

 


Research & Teaching Focus

The research and teaching in this field of political science examine the causes and consequences of inequalities in politics, for instance, the causes and effects of persisting political gender stereotypes.
