Women's and Gender Studies
The Comenius-Institut is continuously contributing to the development of Women’s and Gender Studies. We do research (e.g. on women’s history in RE) and publish articles and books (a handbook on gender and RE is forthcoming in 2009). We organise congresses (e.g. on RE and gender in schools, 14-16 May 2009) and pressure groups (e.g. on institutionalising feminist theology). Since 2007 the Women’s Study and Education Centre (FSBZ) has been an integral part of the new Gender Department of the Institute (see German website http://www.fsbz.de/
We are represented in several organizations and bodies, such as the European Society of Women in Theological Research (ESWTR) or the jury for the "Hanna-Jursch-Preis", an award on women’s studies in theology of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD).
