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.
