Gender- and Diversity-sensitive Research Methods

Gender and diversity aspects can be relevant to research in different ways. Taking diversity dimensions into account can influence planning, choice of methods, and research practice and lead to new research questions and approaches.

Gender- and diversity-related aspects are already incorporated into the development of research questions, research designs, and concepts in many research areas at the university.

Languages and Cultures

The event will focus on cultural diversity in the Nile Valley (Sudan and Egypt), past and present. It will include three short presentations followed by an interactive discussion. It will begin with an overview of the aims and methods of the ERC project DiverseNile and describe the diversity-sensitive approach of this archaeological project in modern Sudan.

The second part of the event will demonstrate how postcolonial approaches to the past help us include actors traditionally excluded from historical narratives about ancient Egypt and Nubia, and discuss the benefits of including such actors in narratives about a more diverse and interesting past.

The third part of the session will present case studies from modern pop culture that relate to past Nile cultures. The goal is to show how the study of the reception of ancient Egypt can reveal colonial structures and thus foster a more diverse, cross-cultural research community.

Systems and Communities

The LMU Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center introduces a new concept for impact-oriented entrepreneurship research and education across all disciplines and degree programs at LMU.

Building on a translational science framework, the goal is to raise awareness of the economic, environmental and social impact of entrepreneurial activities (in the broadest sense) and to promote the application of holistic value principles within related academic activities. Diversity (incorporating a broad range of perspectives) is a fundamental concept for enabling impact-oriented entrepreneurial activities and formats in a research-oriented university setting.In this practice workshop, we explore how the concepts of diversity and impact intersect across disciplines to draw conclusions for IEC activities and formats at LMU.

The workshop recruits professors, graduate students, and undergraduates from across LMU's faculties to explore what diversity means, how it is used, and to critically evaluate LMU's new IEC program. The format and process of the workshop is based on a participatory research design.

This one-hour panel discussion will bring together an international team of co-authors with selected LMU researchers to explore how different disciplinary perspectives influence investigations on the path to health and well-being. Specific research projects will be used as examples to highlight challenges and opportunities that arise from disciplinary diversity. In particular, the dialogue will highlight projects that address the experiences of underserved and minority populations in the health care system, and the transformative power that comes from such projects. Prior to the panel discussion, a "digital tapestry" will be created with registered participants, bringing together diverse viewpoints and voices on the pursuit of health and wellness.

Incorporating gender analysis into research and innovation contributes to better quality of science. Explicitly considering the different needs of women and men, girls and boys, and gender-diverse people will not only improve the quality of new knowledge, but also increase the social relevance of new products and services.

In the AI Lecture, Frauke Kreuter outlines current developments in the use of AI and Big Data in economic and social research. She explains what pitfalls there are in the application and how science can get a grip on questions around ethics and privacy without having to forego reproducibility and reuse of data.
