Globalization Week – Understanding Globalization

Doing Global Gender:
Perspectives on Gender and Re-Globalization

3rd International Globalization Conference

Doing Gender” in its re-globalizing dimension means creating a common discourse by contesting gender roles and developing an intertwined view between gender and global economies, societies, and ideologies in flux. International and private power relations need to be questioned to create equal, fair, and inclusive societies. Revisiting conceptions of femininity and masculinity are fundamental in shaping our understanding of gender beyond a binary male-female dimension.

The conference “Doing Global Gender: Perspectives on Gender and Re-Globalization”, organized by the Center for Advanced Studies of Eurac Research, intends to provide a platform in which gender topics are discussed with international experts, such as Judith Butler, Oyeronke Oyewumi, Ina Praetorius, Corey Wrenn and many more. The possible implications for the local level in South Tyrol are analyzed through a “glocal” lens. At the end of the Globalisation Week, local representatives Armin Bernhard, Arianna Miriam Fiumefreddo, Barbara Plagg, Sarah Trevisiol and Julia Unterberger will take part in the debate.

Thanks to everyone who participated and contributed to the ongoing work on this important topic!

The video recordings of the presentations are now online:
