The research work of the Gender Institute is critical, transnational, and interdisciplinary. Our research is variously positioned in relation to different fields of study within the social sciences and humanities, but in each case, the focus on gender means testing conventional disciplinary boundaries and developing alternative methodologies. All the work addresses, in some way, the tenacity of gender power relations and gendered inequalities in a period of global transformation. Our research falls under four broad strands, and we work both independently and collaboratively within these themes:
Memory, Representation and Culture (Mary Evans; Clare Hemmings; Leticia Sabsay; and Sadie Wearing).
Rights, Security and Development (Marsha Henry; Naila Kabeer; Sumi Madhok; and Ania Plomien).
State, Economy, Families, and Inequalities (Mary Evans; Naila Kabeer; Diane Perrons; Ania Plomien; and Wendy Sigle).
Subjectivity, Sexuality and Identity (Sonia Corrêa; Kimberlé Crenshaw; Clare Hemmings; Leticia Sabsay, and Sadie Wearing).
