Research

At the Simone de Beauvoir Institute (SdBI), we see feminism as a broad methodology that can enable us to better conceptualize and fight for progressive change. Each year, the SdBI offers exciting courses and multiple activities that explore particular local and global sites of interest such as sexuality, violence, health, work, poverty, racism, militarism and globalization. At the heart of our approach to teaching, research, activism and community service is the understanding that social inequality is produced through interlocking systems of oppression and that the state, nationalism and imperialism are central in producing and sustaining asymmetrical power relations. From time to time, the SdBI gets directly involved in debates and takes a public position.
