QUCL - Research on Sexual and Gender diversity at UCL



qUCL builds on existing research being carried out by staff across UCL, while also providing a focal point for future initiatives and collaborative cross-disciplinary research.

To the left you can find links to various ongoing research projects. Below you can find a selection of recent publications. The network is also keen to support doctoral research and MPhil/PhD students, who play a vital role within qUCL.

Doctoral research

qUCL works closely with the Gender & Sexuality Studies programme at UCL to support doctoral research in the humanities and social sciences. Staff affiliated to qUCL supervise and co-supervise a range of MPhil/PhD projects, from LGBTQ representations on television to contemporary trans identities, and from concepts of gay community in Soho to queer life writing. Supervisors often combine expertise by offering interdisciplinary supervision across more than one Department or field of study.
