Gender Research Group

The Gender Research Group brings together the large number of scholars from different subject areas, building on the work accomplished by the former successful Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies.

A critical category of analysis for international research, engagement and collaboration, gender is now a key factor of research impact on society in Medicine and in Sciences: it has diversified into different sub-groups relating to:

  • sexual identities in arts and humanities
  • history of gender relations in texts and contexts
  • rights and inequalities
  • politics of representation
  • feminism
  • applied policy matters

It brings together scholars primarily, but not exclusively, from within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, including Arts, Law, Culture and Music, Education, English, Geography, History, Modern Languages, Politics, Sociology.

The purpose of the GRG is to organise events that bring together scholars from these diverse sub-groups to strengthen the impact of their research and to create new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and methods of inquiry.
