Gender & Diversity This theme continues the institute's tradition. Since 1979 research has focused on gender and subsequently expanded to issues of diversity and otherness. Our main theoretical as well as empirical interest is on gender and otherness as a social and discursive practice. We have elaborated on the notion of performativity as well as the relevance of artifacts, materiality and space on the actual "doings" of gender and diversity. Our research is relevant not only to organizations as well as women and men at work, it is also highly informative for our teaching in the University's teaching programme in gender and diversity studies where students obtain first hand knowledge about timely and crucial issues in the field.
