The aim of the Centre is to coordinate the gender related educational and research
activities at the CUB, and to connect our university to the national and international
scientific network of the discipline.
In its intellectual orientation and interest the Centre tries to combine what is know in the
international scientific community as Gender Studies, a Women's Studies, a Feminist Studies
and Men's Studies. Thus the research and educational activities of our Centre include
both women and men in their focus.
The Centre would like to play an intermediating role for scholars working at various
departments and organizational units within the CUB and at other research and higher
education institutions in Hungary. In this sense the Centre is inter-institutional and inter-
We regard the institutionalization of our international network to be crucial. We would
like to take a more active role in the education carried out in foreign languages at our
University, and to participate in the international scientific community.
We would also like to build on the PhD students interested in gender studies. Our prime
focus is to involve the participants of the PhD programs at our university, but we would
also like to establish forums run by our PhD students that would bring in interested students
from PhD programs accredited at other universities.
