Frankfurt Summer School 2019 ‘Decolonisation and Feminisms’

The Gender Studies Track of the upcoming Frankfurt Summer School 2019 under the title ‘Decolonisation and Feminisms’ will be organized by the Cornelia Goethe Center and GRADE Center Gender.

This two weeks module for advanced master students provides insight into theoretical approaches of current feminist theory focusing on postcolonial/decolonial thought. Seminar presentations and discussions are accompanied by lighthouse lectures and practical experiences like face-to-face encounters with local activists and a walking tour along Frankfurt’s colonial ‘sights’.

Students from Germany and abroad will be attending the International Summer School. The Gender Studies Track will take place from August 5 to August 15 and the seminars will be held in English. The program includes excursions and study tours as well as an optional German language course.
