Picture description

The year 2017 has witnessed unprecedented attention on the issues of gender, gendered inequality and gender-based discriminations and abuses. An international debate has thus spurred reaching public and media attention – with Silence Breakers becoming the 2017 Time’s “Person of the year”, activists engaging online and offline in large scale demonstrations and campaigns, and policymaking having to engage in the promotion of gender equality. But what does adopting a gender lens mean for politics and political analysis? What are the different perspectives through which politics, power, political agencies, and policies can be seen by using a gender lens? With what implications?
On January 25th, at 3pm, we discuss these themes in the COSMOS Seminar “Gender and Political Analysis. Understanding the nexus, facing the challenges”, promoted in the context of the project MAKERS – Movements As KnowledgE produceRS and learning spaces in the digital age, and featuring presentations from prof. Johanna Kantola and prof. Emanuela Lombardo, authors of the book “Gender and Political Analysis” (Palgrave, 2017), prof. Claudia Padovani, Director of the Interdepartmental Center for Gender Studies of the University of Padova, and prof. Donatella della Porta, Dean of the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences and Director of Centre of Social Movements Studies.
