InterGender. Research school in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies
InterGender is a research school in interdisciplinary gender studies that establishes interconnections between Swedish PhD programmes as well as four major European research schools. The aim of InterGender is to further increase the quality of PhD training offered in gender studies, by creating a systematized programme of PhD courses, PhD supervisors’ courses, thematic research seminars and conferences.
InterGender offers a large scale research training programme meeting the needs of PhD students in different phases of their training. The main modules are offered every year on a rotating basis, thus coordinating the respective specialities of the different partner institutions, as well as the different needs of first-, mid- and last-phase PhD students.
The research school is financed through grants from the Swedish Research Council, Vetenskapsrådet.

The National Secretariat for Gender Research has organized a series of studies of Swedish gender studies education. In a recently published report within this series, gender studies alumni have responded to survey questions and participated in focus group interviews, to provide a picture of the connections between gender studies education, ways of perceiving the competencies specific to gender studies, and experiences from the working life that for many alumni have followed after their education.
