9th Winter School: Troubling Gender: Theory and Method, 3.-7.02.2020, Tartu

Last week's 9th Winter School "Troubling Gender: Theory and Method" attracted over a hundred of graduate students from all over the world. They came together to learn from the lectures, seminars, and workshops held by the Winter School international staff from Australia, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Poland, Sweden, the UK, and the USA. In addition to tight learning schedule, the students also enjoyed lots of social and cultural events, including the Science Slam many contributed to as well. Some photos reflecting on the Winter School diverse program are available here:

On Friday we are having two lectures on masculinity, by Lucas Gottzen (10:00) and Todd Reeser (11:45) approcing the topic from the point of view of affect and Foucauldian analysis. The lectures are open for all the listeners and do not require prior registration.

Don´t miss the lectures by Susanna Paasonen (10:00) and Roberto Kulpa (11:45) tomorrow to dig into boredom and enchantment on social media as well as the West vs East discourses in gender research.

Thank you Jack Halberstam and Angela McRobbie (video) for today's lectures.
First day of winter school is over! See you all tomorrow.

The politics of transgender, the politics of sex, the politics of performance, the politics of resistance, the politics of this and the politics of that… What if politics as a framework is not a solution, but a problem? Ask Jack Halberstam, a Professor of Gender Studies and English at Columbia University, at his lecture “Exit Routes: On Dereliction and Destitution” on February 3

On February 4, a Professor of Sociolinguistics in SOAS, University of London and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, Australia, Anne Pauwels will give a lecture on “Gender Troubles in Language” on linguistic sexism in different language systems.

Seminar Ida-Euroopa vandenõuteooriatest //
Seminar on conspiracy theories in Eastern Europe
24.04.2019, 10:00-14:15, Jakobi 2-114

Seminar toob kokku vandenõudeuurijad, kelle huvi keskmes on ennekõike Ida-Euroopas toimuv. Viimase aja populaarsemate vandenõuteooriate kõrval arutletakse ka nende tekke ja leviku tagamaade üle – milline on sotsialistliku mineviku ja suurenenud populistlike meeleolude roll.

This interdisciplinary seminar brings together the scholars working on the topic of the conspiracy theories in Eastern Europe. The papers will investigate the most recent and popular conspiracy theories and observe how the socialist past and populism-infused present impact their emergence and dissemination.
