    Teaching Gender. Theory and society in the classroom

    Now more than ever, gender as an analytical concept is being heavily contested from diverse quarters inside as well as outside academia. The panel discussion addresses key questions of how to teach gender as  critical theory in the light of current societal and political tensions on the one hand and institutional constraints inside the university on the other hand. How can we teach “critique”? What does teaching gender mean in terms of methods and topics? And how can we engage in critical research and teaching while responding to societal expectations as to relevant output and knowledge transfer?

    Engaging Society in Innovation and Creativity

    Perspectives from Social Sciences and Humanities

    The trend of change from science and technology policy to science, technology and innovation (STI) policy becomes remarkable in Japan but also in Europe. Policymakers intend to break down the sense of economic and social stagnation by creating innovation driven by science and technology. In order to solve complex social issues, innovation is definitely essential. However, it is also obvious that creating “real” innovation needs some other elements than just the development of hard science and technology. Innovation needs integration of knowledge beyond disciplines. Recently the role of social science and humanities (SSH) in the innovation process is being highlighted and science, technology and innovation policy of many countries now expects SSH to play important role in conceiving, realizing and adjusting the policy.
