About us

As an interdisciplinary centre, the Centre for Gender Studies aims to encourage and develop diverse understanding concerning the social category of gender as well as its intersection with other social categories such as age, class, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion and sexuality.

This is evidenced in its annual research seminar series, open to the public, which hosts prominent figures in the field and showcases recent advances in gender studies. Recent events have focussed on the relationship between women and death and on the gendered impact of triggering Article 50.

The University of Winchester, in particular the Centre for Gender Studies, plays a key role in Hampshire Pride, an annual series of events that provides a space for all of Hampshire to get together and celebrate the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) community. In 2016 the CGS organised a series of fascinating lectures and a symposium as part of Hampshire Pride.
