The research platform „GAIN – Gender: Ambivalent In_Visibilities“ was established in January 2020 and aims at attending to the complex and ambivalent processes that give rise to intersectionally gendered in_visibilities. Originally, the kick-off conference had been scheduled for April 2020, but had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. Now GAIN is pleased to host its inaugural conference online via Zoom in cooperation with colleagues from Hungary.
