Tema Genus Seminars Spring semester 2012
Tema Genus Seminars are open seminars on the advanced level. The seminars constitute a feminist arena for exchanging critical, intersectional and anti-discriminatory research, ideas and inspirations. A seminar often consists of a lecture followed by fika and lively discussion with the participants.
