Round Table 5
IDEOLOGIES SHAKING THE EUROPEAN FUTURE?Location: TIGY, CEU, N11
Right-wing extremism is visible and tangible across Europe, from Hungary and France to the Netherlands and Norway. At the same time, homophobia is increasing in much of Europe. The European economic crisis, together with wide-spread neo-liberalist policies, is doing enormous damage to societies, universities and everyday life. In this round table the consequences of these trends will be discussed.

Round Table 6
TEACHING GENDER AND THE USE OF THE GENDER STUDIES TUNING BROCHURE. A CREATIVE REFLECTION AFTER ONE AND A HALF YEARSLocation: Gellner, CEU, N9
Four years ago the ATHENA Advanced Thematic Network for Women’s Studies started a process that resulted in a brochure about the development and future of teaching women’s, gender and feminist studies in Europe. The Gender Studies Tuning Brochure, Reference Points for the Design and Delivery of Degree Programmes in Gender Studies was published in 2010. It has been one and a half years since the brochure was released, and thus there is a need to reflect on its implications for gender education. Academics, students and activists engaged in the struggle for gender equality have been invited to participate in this necessary and vital reflection. During the round table the invited speakers will address and problematize the creative and productive correlations between the Gender Studies Tuning Brochure and education, gender education and gender equality, speaking from the perspective of their own institutional situatedness and geo-political location.
