Gendered Subjects Research Group

Gendered Subjects, established in 1999, is an interdisciplinary research group whose methodologies and approaches are informed by feminism and queer theory. It aims to combine academic research with a commitment to supporting and promoting feminist activity in the region. Contributors to the group host annual events to celebrate International Women's Day, contributed to the first ever North East Feminist Gathering in 2012, organise regular conferences and symposiums on feminism and popular/contemporary culture and work with other academic groups, such as the Contemporary Women's Writing Association, to raise the profile of feminist research in the academy.

Contributors to the group welcome research students interested in exploring the construction and critique of gendered identities in contemporary culture.
