As of the beginning of 2016, the newly founded Margherita von Brentano Center has taken over the duties of both the Center for the Promotion of Women’s and Gender Studies and the Interdisciplinary Center for Gender Studies.

The Margherita von Brentano Center’s main duties and organizational structure were newly stipulated in a statute approved by the Academic Senate of Freie Universität Berlin, published in the Official Gazette of Freie Universität Berlin on November 18, 2015.

In the spirit of its namesake Margherita von Brentano, the center will be dedicated with renewed vigor to initiating and supporting (international) collaborative projects in research and teaching that harness and advance Gender Studies’ interdisciplinary, trans-disciplinary, intellectually critical, and self-reflective potential.
