Gender and Politics Research Group
This group brings together lecturers and researchers who think of gender as a central analytical lens through which power, institutions, norms and identities should be studied.
Gender is increasingly prominent in research and teaching within the Department of Political Science. The members of our group approach gender politics from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. A number of researchers are interested in debates on gender and security with an emphasis on diplomacy, gender just peace, women and war, and soldiering. Our members also conduct research in gender and development on topics such as the Sustainable Development Goals and women’s empowerment.
Our group meets several times during the semester to discuss draft papers, articles and books proposed by our members. We welcome new members and guest researchers.
