Centre for Gender, Sexuality & Difference

The centre  undertakes cross-disciplinary humanistic research and teaching. The emphasis is on the historical, cultural and linguistic dimensions, as well as more overall epistemological and scientific historical issues.

Reproduction and sexuality are an overall theme. The Centre's studies are based especially on the investigation of identity, norms and power relations, as these are expressed in the intersectional interaction with social categories and phenomena such as gender, sexuality, race, class, nationality and disability, new and older kinship forms and affect/emotions, including from feministic and queer-theoretical analytical angles. A wide range of empirical data, social debates, historical sources, new media, literature and popular culture is considered.
