ConGender hosts the cross disciplinary workshop series FemArc that focus on work in progress. The multidisciplinary group functions as an internationally oriented academic forum for researchers and PhD fellows who are exploring feminist theories and gender perspectives at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

The group's activities are aimed at the participants' wishes and needs. The focus lies on developing, presenting and discussing group members’ own texts, or other works that use gender and/or feminist approaches (conference papers, journal articles, etc. work in progress).

Terms of participation: FemArc is open for researchers and fellows at UiT Norway's Arctic University with an interest in deepening their competence in gender research and/or feminist theory. In order to ensure a safe and stable environment for knowledge sharing the seminars join a fixed group, and only take up new members once a year (August). FemArc meets  2-3 times each semester at the Center for Women's and Gender Research (Breiviklia N119).

Get in touch with Lilli Mittner if you are curious and would like to join!
