Guidelines for the academic work at the faculty of catholic theology (german)

Gender-sensitive language in our research:

Language influences people's thinking and actions. Knowingly or unknowingly discrimination on the basis of race, class and gender can be (re-)produced through language.  

On the basis of the biblical witness we are convinced, that every person has equal dignity. Therefore we are committed to the cause that "the basic equality of all must receive increasingly greater recognition" (GS 29).

One component of moving closer to this goal is the effort to make all genders visible not only in real terms, but also linguistically in our university work.

For this reason, we recommend the guidelines for the use of gender-sensitive language (german) to all students who are writing seminar papers or qualification theses at our Chair and, of course, we, ourselves, also strive to use gender-sensitive wording in all our publications.
