As a research unit hosted by the Institute of Social Sciences, the Centre for Gender Studies CEG aims to:
- support the development of gender research in the social sciences at UNIL;
- encourage interdisciplinary research in Gender Studies through research leadership activities;
- provide a scientific framework for students who wish to incorporate gender studies in their academic course and/or adopt a gender perspective in their research.
The Interfaculty Facility for Gender Studies (PlaGe) is a cross-faculty, cross-disciplinary network, whose main objective is to examine gender in its overall reality, through exchanging knowledge, analyses and methods across several disciplines.
The Facility encourages collaboration between its various members in the field of research, organizing scientific activities (conferences, seminars and work in progress), as well as disseminating and integrating Gender Studies into the various disciplines and faculties at UNIL.
