The Centre for Gender Studies at the University of Winchester was launched in June 2011. Since then it has generated much interest from academics, research students and non-academic user groups alike. As an interdisciplinary centre, the CGS aims to encourage and develop diverse understanding concerning the social category of gender as well as its intersection with other social categories such as age, class, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion and sexuality. This diversity of understanding is evidenced in its annual research seminar series, open to the public, which hosts prominent figures in the field and showcases recent advances in gender studies. The Centre seeks to foster links, both nationally and internationally, through encouraging collaborative projects. Likewise, we are interested in hearing from prospective research students.
