Publication date:


Gender is much more than just the simple and traditional dichotomy between men and women. Gender issues impact all of our lives and the very concept of gender is being re-examined and redefined. This CORDIS Results Pack highlights some of the recent frontier research on issues relating to gender, funded by the European Research Council (ERC). It features the work of ERC grantees whose projects are working either within – or in several cases across – a multitude of academic fields within the humanities and social sciences. The common purpose of the 12 projects that feature in this CORDIS Results Pack is to challenge prevailing assumptions in mainstream science and society, and to shed new light on gender relations. This they do by harnessing a cross-cutting approach to gender that brings together perspectives of political science, sociology, history, international relations, law and philosophy. This collection of projects provides a tantalising snapshot of some fascinating, recent research. The scholars behind these efforts help advance our understanding of sex and gender, and their impact on society and individuals. Their work allows us to better comprehend one of the fundamental elements of human experience.
