Gender Expert Group an der FHSE

The Gender Expert Group is a trans-disciplinary research group reporting to the dean’s office of the Faculty of Humanities.

Its focus is on construction processes of gender (sex/gender), sexualities and identities in cultural, social, political and historical contexts. As part of this, asymmetrical power-knowledge relationships are critically analysed. The group studies the interrelatedness of individual and collective construction processes of gender and gender relations, which go beyond a binary perspective of sexuality.

In the Gender Expert Group, interconnections are made between approaches from educational science, sociology, cultural studies, psychology and medicine with a focus on the construction, reconstruction and deconstruction of social discourses on gender.

The Gender Expert Group is a research network that aims to establish critical gender studies at the University of Luxembourg using transdisciplinary, transnational and cross-institutional collaboration.
