Gender Studies and Feminist Theory - A Multidisciplinary Perspective Classes will take place in presence from July 8th to 13th, 2024.                                                 

The Seasonal School will delve into gender studies with a multidisciplinary critical perspective, combining different approaches in social sciences. In order to tackle the most relevant issues in contemporary gender studies and feminist theory, participants will be provided with pivotal conceptual tools from an epistemological, political, legal and philosophical point of view as well as with a cross-cutting knowledge of the different theoretical-methodological frameworks employed in the debate. Other than providing a theoretical-political framework on the contribution of the gender dimension in social sciences, the training programme will require participants to reflect on global and intersectional perspectives as well as on the impact of policies and politics on everyday challenges: e.g. the structural dimension gender-based violence, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), the emerging of situated needs for different subjectivities in public and collective space. The aim of the Seasonal School is to enable students to understand the impact of such challenges on the society as a whole, from a political, legal and social perspective, raising a critical attitude informed by a feminist intersectional standpoint.

BEEP - Biology for human space exploration Classes will take place in presence from July 22nd to 26th, 2024.

The Seasonal School will offer an overview of specific topics of experimental biology and biomedicine in support of human exploration of space. With the dawn of commercial access and exploitation of space, the major space agencies including the Italian Space Agency and the European Space Agency are planning, with industrial support and investments, outposts for human crews to live and work in space. This course represents a unique opportunity to learn about how space exploration has provided experimental biology a new and unprecedented way to study life, and also will highlight the most compelling issues for a safe and productive inhabiting of space. Moreover, since space exploration is by definition a collective endeavour, it will be discussed how work in space may represent an inclusive opportunity.
