In 2018, a new research group succeeding the retirement of Prof. Doris Wastl-Walter has taken up its work at the Department of Geography at the University of Bern. Our research focuses on feminist social, cultural and political geographies. Being a team of six – namely Prof. Dr. Carolin Schurr, Dr. Maaret Jokela-Pansini, Dr. Elisabeth Militz, Laura Perler, Dr. Jasmine Truong, Dr. Jeannine Wintzer –, we aim to provide a platform for feminist geographies. We seek to build a space where geographers can discuss feminist theories, explore new methodological approaches and establish a feminist academic practice which is characterized by solidary forms of collaborations both within and beyond academia.
