Wolfson College Gender Research Hub

gender logo

Wolfson College’s Interdisciplinary Research Hub on Gender brings together our international community of Fellows, students and alumni to create an open and active channel for discussions about gender and support gender-related research by college members. 

The Gender Hub brings together individuals from a wide range of disciplines, generations and perspectives in accessible events, informal discussions and advocacy initiatives related to gender.  The Hub recognises that gender intersects with other axes of oppression: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, and dis/ability status, among others. The Hub is committed to exploring and analysing these intersections in the events we organise and the initiatives we advance.

    Strategic Priorities 

    The Gender Research Hub aims to:

    1. Spark cross-disciplinary conversations and innovative collaborations among Wolfson researchers –students, Fellows and alumni – on issues related to gender.  
    2. Organise events to raise the profile of research on gender within the College community.
    3. Support College members engaged in research on gender by offering ample opportunities to share their work in informal discussions of work-in-progress, mini-conferences and social events.
