WELCOME TO EDGES!
Joint European PhD in Gender and Women’s Studies
October 2013 – October 2015
EDGES is a Lifelong Learning Programme Project that involves eight academic and non-academic European institutions coordinated by the University of Bologna with a longstanding collaboration and expertise in Women’s and Gender Studies. EDGES aims to shape and develop a model for a European PhD in Women’s and Gender Studies. EDGES will trigger an interdisciplinary and intercultural approach to highlight crucial issues such as women’s migration, violence on and exploitation of women’s body, traumatic experiences in recent conflict areas, cultural and counter-memories, equal opportunities in education, careers and job market, discrimination in sexual orientation, civil rights and religious prejudices. EDGES will favour a vital change in the preparation of the next generation of academic, business, public and third sector European leaders.
