Welcome to the DFG Research Unit “Law – Gender – Collectivity”

Our interdisciplinary Research Unit has been active since January 2018. It brings together scholars of law, sociologists, European ethnologists and historians from the three major Berlin universities, the University of Potsdam and the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Read more…

The Research Unit consists of six sub-projects and a coordinating project. In every sub-project, a team investigates a particular empirical research field. In our second funding phase (2021-2024), these are environmental law and climate litigation (A), transnational labor conflicts (B), urban & housing commons (C), consumer protection (D), processes of infrastructurization (E), and human rights, queer genders and sexualities since the 1970s (F).


Workshop discussion: Law and collectivity - some basic considerations.

Event of the Law & Society Institute (LSI):

The series "Workshop discussions" is organized by the project group of the Law & Society Institute (LSI) and encourages mainly - but not only - young researchers to participate, as well as to present and discuss their current research in an informal and open atmosphere. For the audience, this format offers insight into the latest research results, and for the presenters, the opportunity to receive feedback, criticism and suggestions on their own "work-in-progress".

Speakers: Lecture by Jan-Christoph Marschelke, commentary by Eva Kocher.
When?: Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2019, 6:15 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where?: Humboldt University, Faculty of Law, Unter den Linden 9, Room E 25.
