The objective(s) of the tool

Enhancing visibility and communicating contents of gender studies (current debates, activities, research work, literature, cultural production, initiatives, activism) as well as informing on gender studies and the advancement of women at the University of Salzburg (scholarships, grants, lectures, courses, continuing education and training). Targeted low-threshold distribution among all university staff and students as well as interested parties outside the university with the intention of introducing gendup’s activities and elucidating the diversity inherent in gender studies. Besides being aimed at experts, it is also meant to reach and sensitize people who have little or no interest in gender studies content.
