The ZtG is outraged by the ongoing violence against the Schwules Museum and other queer institutions in Berlin and elsewhere

Archives and museums like the SMU are important cooperation partners for research and teaching in gender studies. Together we work and research for more gender justice, the recognition of LGBTIQ* lifestyles and the visualization of queer culture and history.

The ZtG mourns the death of Dr. Adrian de Silva

Adrian de Silva was a fellow of the Research Training Group Gender as a Category of Knowledge at HU Berlin from 2008-2011. His dissertation, published under the title 'Negotiating the Borders of the Gender Regime: Developments and Debates on Trans(sexuality) in the Federal Republic of Germany' (open access), is a foundational work on the history of the regulation of gender(change) in the Federal Republic of Germany. He established himself as an important voice of German trans* research with a large number of publications and has unfortunately been taken far too soon.

We will miss him and his academic contributions, but also his endearing humor.
