It will investigate intersectional identities, exploring vulnerability and power in the intersections of difference and belonging. For professionals in the field, it means the opportunity to gain theoretical background for working with the concepts of gender and its cognates creatively and critically in their personal and professional lives, allowing identification of new courses of action in their own context.
