People and Partners

The aim of the GFRN is to bring expertise and knowledge from across faculties, schools and institutes into productive interdisciplinary dialogue.

Anyone involved in research at UCL can affiliate to the network, if they are currently working in gender studies, feminism or any related fields. We hold regular meetings where any member can attend to discuss ideas for events or the future direction and activities of the network. If you would like to be involved please email ucl.gfrn@ucl.ac.uk

I teach on the Gender and Sexuality Studies programme at SELCS-CMII and have been involved with the GFRN since I arrived at UCL in 2016. My research interests are in women’s experiences of war and military power; gender, sexuality and security, and feminist epistemology.

Emma Jones
I am a Lecturer in Education and Gender at the UCL Institute of Education. My research in gender and international development is interdisciplinary and informed by feminist epistemologies and decoloniality.
