Every year, the SPP organizes workshops about gender dimensions during research in, with and about Africa.


In January 2013, the workshop "Gender and Beyond" had been held.  The goal was to engage with the projects' own research and the gender dimension. Furthermore, the workshop was targeted at other aspects that stood in interaction with the notion of gender in their research, such as class, age and ethnicity.

From 23-26 January 2014, a second workshop will be held at the University of Leipzig. This time, the aim is to elaborate on the aforementioned issues with regard to the concept of circulating narratives and to further stimulate the discussion.
