CEU Condemns Attacks against Gender Studies Programs in Hungary

CEU condemns recent unfounded attacks against Gender Studies programs in Hungary. Gender Studies is an internationally recognized academic field, which produces intellectually and socially relevant knowledge and which has been taught at our university for well over a decade. Our graduates are exceptionally successful at finding employment in the international job market. Eliminating the program would be a loss to the Hungarian scholarly community and would further limit academic freedom in the country. CEU is committed to continuing teaching its Gender Studies programs.

The department is looking forward to welcoming new and returning students in September to start another academic year. We are preparing handbooks, course materials, and all the information you will need when you get here (along with the help you will get from the CEU central administration). The Head of Department and the office staff will greet new students on Monday, September 3, and give you an introduction to what's coming next. Zero Week, September 10-14, is when our activities really get going as you join the faculty, returning students, and the rest of the new students for a series of lectures and workshops in the mornings, course presentations in the afternoons, and a Welcome Party on Thursday evening at CEU's very own Rooftop Garden. More information will be coming soon. Enjoy the rest of summer!
