Mobility Outcomes

Erasmus Mundus Scholars take the visit opportunity to advance their own research projects, results of which can be seen in the publications produced out of their stays. Pertinent examples are Biljana Dojcinovic-Nesic’s Meetings in the Dark: Introduction to reading Virginia Woolf (2010) and Adriana Piscitelli’s Industria del sexo y Mercado matrimonial (2011) both explicitly acknowledging their debt to GEMMA stipend.

GEMMA World

GEMMA World is the extension to non-European contexts of GEMMA: Master in Women's and Gender Studies. In the framework of Erasmus Mundus Action 3, the existing European GEMMA Consortium decided to establish strong partnerships with five prestigious third country Women´s/Gender Studies Centers:

  • Interdisciplinary Institute of Gender Studies, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Women’s Studies Center at Florida International University, USA
  • Center of Interdisciplinary Research on Sciences and Humanities, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico
  • Women’s' and Gender Studies Department, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA
  • Center for Gender Studies, Technological Institute of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

GEMMA World makes possible the mobility of GEMMA students and scholars to non-European research and higher education institutions where either English or Spanish (two languages of instruction of the Master) are spoken, giving the GEMMA Master its necessary global dimension.

GEMMA World is a unique project of strong collaboration between most prestigious European and non-European Women's/Gender Studies institutions providing them with exciting new possibilities of cooperation, knowledge sharing and exchange of ideas in the area of higher education. GEMMA Students and scholars participating in action will benefit from these new opportunities.
