The Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies (NOG) at Utrecht University (The Netherlands) provides a platform for gender sensitive and postcolonial research. Since 1995, the NOG has offered a highly successful training programme and research environment for postgraduate students, PhD students and senior researchers. The NOG teaching and research staff consists of an international team of professors and senior lecturers from various universities.
The NOG is a top European programme and plays a central role in European cooperation on research and training in the area of Gender and Postcolonial studies. It has an excellent, long-standing international reputation for its pioneering work in the field of literary, cultural, philosophical, anthropological and epistemological feminist studies. It offers one of Europe’s most advanced interdisciplinary teaching and research programmes in the humanities, with a core curriculum on feminist theory, issues of difference and diversity, gender, and postcolonialism.
In addition, the NOG is involved in European and international projects like the InterGender Network (together with a.o. Linköping University, Humboldt University, Helsinki University), ATGENDER, RINGS, EU LLP EDGES and the EU Horizon2020 Marie Curie GRACE project to establish – among other things – a European joint PhD curriculum in Gender Studies.
