The onlinejournal ‘kultur & geschlecht’ (culture and gender) is a transdisciplinary forum for the next generation of scientists at the Ruhr University Bochum who are researching gender issues and their contexts. It is published by Astrid Deuber-Mankowsky and Jasmin Degeling under their professorial chair of ‘Media Publicity and Media Players with Special Consideration for Gender’ at the Ruhr University Bochum’s Institute of Media Studies, and is sponsored by the Faculty of Philology and the rectorship of the RUB.
The aim is to make projects, more comprehensive term papers, bachelor’s and master’s theses, conferences and workshops with innovative approaches and questions on gender studies accessible to a wider public. The focus is on current gender and queer studies within cultural studies.
The online journal ‘kultur & geschlecht’, which is published twice a year, offers the next generation of academics, who are transitioning from masters to doctorate level, the opportunity to publish their first work and also to gain expertise in reviewing, editing and publishing publications.
