Co-Chairs: Dr Emma Deeks and Kieran Wyatt

The Gender and Sexuality Research Group is an inter-disciplinary group which promotes global research into gender and sexuality studies, launched in 2007. We meet regularly to hear research papers, engage in debate, and run seminars and workshops on subjects such as: masculinities, feminisms, gender theories, LGBT and/or queer studies, sexuality and subversion, bodily/embodiment narratives and transgendered identities.

The aim of the group is to provide international academics and postgraduate students with a forum for academic debate and to foster intellectual exchange and development. In addition to an annual research paper programme the group seeks to generate conference events and publications.

Where and when do we meet?

The Gender and Sexuality Research Group meets regularly through the academic year at Edge Hill University’s Ormskirk campus and at other locations in Liverpool and London.

Our rooms vary from session to session but you can get details by joining our email list. To sign up, please email the group chair Dr Mari Hughes-Edwards.
