Gender and Sexuality Studies

We aim to explore the historical and contemporary challenges arising from changes in gender relations in a range of contexts and sexuality as expressed in social, cultural and political life.

Gender and Sexuality Studies at UCL is based at the Centre for Multidisciplinary and Intercultural Inquiry (CMII) but our research and teaching draws on the unique breadth of cross-faculty disciplines for which UCL is renowned.
