Workshop “How to Incorporate Gender Perspective on Research”
September 18th, 2012
Speakers: Sandra Dema and Capitolina Díaz (Oviedo University).
Face-to-face Sessions: September 27th and 28th, 09:00-14:00 hr.
Place: Education Faculty, module B, B1-1-05 classroom (Central Campus).
Aimed to: Professorate, research personnel or scholars, and the ULL student body.
Inscription: Free, limited places. You should apply for it in *email@example.com*, before September 21st.
Objective: The main sexist turns seen in the research field will be presented, as well as the effect that they have on the research’s quality. Furthermore, through analysis, we will see how to introduce gender perspective in each phase of the research process, from the selection of a problem to investigate and the selection of the sample, to the results of the analysis, and its later
publication. Lastly, we will present the criteria of gender inclusiveness that some agencies and/or editorials demand for the acceptance of projects. This formation is framed in the Seventh European Frame program and the new Science, Technology and Innovation Law, which establishes that: “The Spanish Science and Technology Strategy and the State Plan of Scientific and Technological Research will promote the incorporation of the gender perspective as a transversal category on research and technology, implying that its relevance will be considered in every aspect of the process, including the definition of the priorities on scientific-technical research, research issues, theoretical and explanatory frameworks, methods, collecting and interpreting data, conclusions, applications and technological development, and the proposals for future projects. It will also promote gender and women studies, as well as specific measures to stimulate and recognize the presence of women in research teams. ”
Organizers: Gender Equality Unit of the ULL, and University Institute of Women’s Studies of the ULL.
Funded by: Ministry of Health, Social and Equality Services, and Social European Fund.
