Gender Studies – Research

Gender Studies at Åbo Akademi University offers an active interdisciplinary research environment. A common interest and denominator for many of our researchers and teachers is intersectionality, which involves examining power structures and differences related to gender, race, ethnicity, language, religion, health status, ability level, sexual orientation, age, and body size. Many of our researchers also engage in postcolonial feminist research.
