GENDER ISSUES PROGRAMME IN FULL SWING
The Gender Issues Programme, announced in the first issue of Eagle Street, has had a good start and will feature strongly in the Finnish Institute's programme in 1997. The first workshop meeting in September charted several themes to be explored in a Finnish-Nordic-Baltic-British-Irish context. It was noted that some of the themes, like multiculturality, masculinity and possibly citizenship, have a bearing on the whole programme. Another observation was that old themes like citizenship should be looked at from new perspectives, one example being representations of nationality and citizenship.
Book launch, 28 January 1997: "Gendered Practices in Working Life",
edited by Liisa Rantalaiho and Tuula Heiskanen, published by Macmillan.
