MATILDA at CEU
At CEU transnational and comparative approaches are foregrounded, with place, class, “race,” religion and other categories informing the study of women and gender in history. Thematic foci include comparative histories of “state-socialism,” women’s activism and gender politics, as well as East/West–North/South relations, nation/nationalisms, and the study of the relationship between humanity and nature. MATILDA at CEU brings together faculty from many countries and research traditions with expertise in Gender and Historical Studies (including medieval studies).
