Women’s Representatives of the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology

Postdoc+ Research Grant 2021 awarded!

The Postdoc+ Research Grant, which was announced for the first time this year, was awarded to Dr. Alexandra Böhm. She will use the grant to apply for an ERC grant with the project “Archives of environmental historical knowledge. Reconstructing a precarious constellation in the ‘small literature’ 1850 to 1930.” The Faculty Women’s Representative Prof. Dr. Aida Bosch congratulates Ms. Böhm on receiving the grant!

At the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology, gender aspects are examined in research and teaching at the social and institutional level, depending on the individual disciplines. For example, the “career development of university graduates of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (BELA-E)” has been investigated with a DFG project since 1995.

Gender-specific socialization takes place in research and teaching, as well. The faculty aims at increasing the proportion of women on all qualification levels and especially in the areas where women are underrepresented. In addition, gender aspects are to be integrated in all fields of research and teaching.

The women’s representatives are continuously working on increasing the proportion of women particularly in these departments and those qualification levels in which women are underrepresented.
