Announcing the Research Cluster “Gender and Politics” at the “International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs”

In December 2016, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a three-and-a-half year financial support to establish the International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP). The task of this international consortium is to document, connect, and support the various programs and projects that now represent critical theory across the globe.

The research cluster Gender and Politics at the University of Vienna, headed by Prof.Dr.in Birgit Sauer and Dr.in Brigitte Bargetz, is part of the ICCTP. The research group aims at a gender-sensitive theorization of politics, society, economy, and culture.
