The NOV is a succesfull training center in the Netherlands for postgraduate
students which received in 1994 the highest academic creditation as a Ph.D.
degree-awarding institution from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and
Sciences. It provides a rigorous platform for training post-graduate
students in a stimulating learning environment. The curriculum aims at
offering tuition on a range of thematic and methodological issues which are
central to gender research and to international scholarship on gender
today. The NOV is directed by Prof.dr. Rosi Braidotti since 1995 and is
housed at Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
The course work of the NOV is organized around two main research lines:
"Identity, Representation and Embodiment", with a clear orientation towards
the humanities and cultural studies and "Policy, Politics and
Organisation", which is directed towards the social sciences.
To accomodate the individual needs of foreign students the NOV has the
following educational options available:
* Intensive International Graduate programme:
concentrating either on "Body Issues" or on "Gender and Social Policy".
This five-month programme runs every year from February-June and is open to
