Gender Studies Banner


The Centre for Gender Studies in Wales provides a focus within the University for cross-Faculty, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in gender and sexuality studies generally, and in relation to Welsh history, culture and society in particular.

Because of its existing expertise, the University is particularly well positioned to function as a centre of research excellence in this field. The development of the Centre was a logical and organic extension of work historically done in both the Faculty of Business and Society and the Faculty of Creative Industries, and one to which members have a long-term commitment. 

The Centre complements work at existing research centres of the University, in particular the Centre for the Study of Media and Culture in Small Nations as well as the English Research Group and History Research Group. Its members include researchers from all the faculties of the University as well as from the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching.


Centre members encourage and support one another’s research through an annual event on International Women’s Day, the Ursula Masson Memorial lecture, as well as a seminar series, public lectures and through regular group meetings.
