Description"How to Use the Concept of “Gender” to Dismantle a Democracy: Lessons from Hungary, Lessons for Europe"

presented by Eva Fodor
Pro-Rector for Social Sciences and professor in the Gender Studies Department, Central European University, Budapest.

Fodor (PhD, UCLA) is a sociologist whose work focuses on gender, labor markets and welfare states. She is author of Working Difference: Women’s Working Lives in Hungary and Austria (Duke). She has been active in the CEU’s ongoing struggle against the Hungarian government’s attempts to force it out of the country and against government banning of Gender Studies degrees. Thus, she brings us an insider’s analytical view into how authoritarian governments destroy academic and civic freedoms, as well as the consequences that follow.
