The Centre for Gender Studies at European Humanities University is an academic program offering a master's degree in gender studies and research unit focused on (but not limited by) the following issues: gender, postcommunism and nationalism; gender and visual arts, gender and mass communication, feminist philosophy, men's studies, gender discourse in Post Soviet Academy, qualitative methods in gender research. The activities of the Centre include research, curriculum development, a conference, workshops, and a couple of publications. The idea is to make the Centre open for students of all universities in Minsk and, probably, in Belarus upon payment of a symbolic registration fee. We are starting with just a couple of courses in the curriculum plus a series of seminars in gender for faculty staff. The main problem is a drastic lack of lecturers in the field (and general absence of a feminist context in the Western meaning of the word).
