Description: 

ILCML will be developing, in 2016/17, among others, the line Intersexualities.

The main objectives of this line will be to: 

 

  • develop a database called SHE TOUGHT IT, centred on women who have been responsible for scientific breakthroughs; the database will contain entries on women from different areas of knowledge (and from all over the world) who have developed breakthrough work in their respective fields of action;

 

  • promote an international conference on Intersexualities;

 

  • prepare an international cycle of seminars on Feminist Studies, Gender Studies, Queer Studies, Utopian Studies, Theatre Studies and Comparative Literature;

 

  • develop several outreach activities, such as a cycle on Literature and Science.

 

The line will benefit from the contribution of several trainees coming from all over Europe, who will help with the creation of the database (programming and design), as well as with the necessary scientific research to feed the database, and promote all the aforementioned activities.

 

However, we are in need of contributions from specialists in Literature and Linguistics who may help with the research for the database She Thought It, which will be carried out by a multidisciplinary team. Specifically, we need researchers in the areas of:

  • Literature
  • Comparative Literature

A truly international work environment will be offered till June 2017, as well as the unique opportunity to participate in activities that will grow in direct proportion to their work. Trainees are welcome to stay from 2,5 months to the end of the project – June 2017. Trainees are required to bring a personal computer with all the software required for the task presented. 

Compensation: 
No financial compensation
