Gender Equality / Diversity

The universities of Kiel and Lübeck have a very strong and committed interest in promoting female scientists. They have established family-friendly conditions for studying, teaching and research. Special funding for these purposes will be used by the Research Training Group to offer courses and training sessions in transferrable skills, and we will support scientists to nadle both their scientific work as well as their family obligations.

For all questions concerning gender equality within the RTG please contact

The Fachschaft SoPo would like to invite you to the lecture series Gender & Diversity. We have put together a varied program for the winter semester 2019/20 containing contributions by lecturers in sociology, political science and education as well as students presenting their thesis topics. Furthermore, there will be contributions by a university group and a non-university-active collective to complement the lecture series.

The diverse program offers topics such as the women's movement in Kiel, black feminism, racism at university, anti-terrorist measures, gender identity, sexual violence, migration, beginnings of gender and queer studies or diversity in families, but also inclusion at university, bio-politics and trans*gender and the fight for women's suffrage.

All lectures will be in German language.
The program, dates and further information are available online here:

We look forward to an inspiring semester and exciting discussions!
