PhD course: Modernization, gender and generation-reconfigurations of everyday life.(Cases from China and the Nordic countries)


The intention with this PhD course is to bring together researchers and PhD students from the Nordic countries, China or elsewhere, who share research interests in gender and generational relations, and processes and conceptions of modernization and individualization. The empirical field of study can be either the Nordic countries or China - or both. It is not a condition that participants know about both contexts, but they must find it interesting to compare perspectives and findings. What can we learn about and from each other, and what can we learn about ourselves from looking with other(s') eyes? The participants are invited to take part in a mutual exchange of knowledge and a dialogue on what processes and concepts of modernization, individualization and feminism may entail in different contexts.
