Sophia and ATGENDER are delighted to announce the official presentation of the Tuning Gender Studies Brochure in Brussels.
This Tuning Brochure is an enormous step towards the recognition of the field and will shape the future of gender studies all over Europe,because it provides widely approved reference points for gender studies programmes. This text is the result of over a decade of intensive cooperation and exchange in gender studies in Europe through the ATHENA network.
The Tuning Gender Studies Brochure has been prepared according to the Tuning methodology, an EC-sponsored programme for quality assessment in higher education within context of the Bologna Process. It is an official tool to be used for the quality assessment in gender studies teaching programmes.
We invite academics, equal opportunity and higher education specialists and policy-makers, activists, gender studies students and graduates to attend this festive event.
