The Gender and Sexuality Research Group

About GenSex

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 also 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 EHU’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 – just email the group chair Dr Mari Hughes-Edwards on [email protected] or [email protected].

Would you like to present a paper/lead a workshop?

Interdisciplinary research-based presentations are always welcome, as are art installations, film viewings, debates and workshops.

Topics can include masculinities, feminisms, gender theories, queer studies, sexuality and subversion, bodily narratives and transgendered identities.

If you would like to present a paper or lead a GenSex workshop just contact [email protected] or [email protected]
