Make plans to study with Carleton in Europe in Fall 2024

Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe’s multi-country itinerary includes the Netherlands, Germany, and the Czech Republic.

Delve into practical and theoretical aspects of feminist and queer theory in the Netherlands, Germany, and the Czech Republic with Faculty Director Iveta Jusová and local faculty from each of the program sites.

Are you curious about how gender and race/ethnicity are experienced and understood in Western and East Central Europe in comparison to the US? Are you ready to explore the challenges and insights of the latest feminist and queer theories cross-culturally? Have you wondered what you can do to effectively contest patriarchy, homophobia, and racism and transform the world for the better?

Since 1984, Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe has offered students a unique opportunity to explore feminist and queer theory in practice across Western and East Central Europe. Interaction with academics, politicians, activists, and homestay hosts encourages comparative approaches to independent research projects. The Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe itinerary for Fall 2024 includes Utrecht, Berlin, Prague, and Olomouc.

Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe is a great fit for:

  • Students who love to travel, and will look forward to relocating every three to four weeks
  • Students who are motivated to examine gender, race, queer and sexuality issues in Western and East Central Europe
  • Students who are excited about carrying out an independent research project in Europe as part of their study abroad experience
