University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies
The University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies (UCCGS) is a wholly multidisciplinary centre within the University. Its objective is to analyse the human condition through rigorous gender analysis using a wide range of disciplinary methods from biology to political philosophy. In doing so the Centre promotes awareness of the relevance of gender in historic, economic, political, social and scientific contexts. The Centre provides a research MPhil in Multi-disciplinary Gender Studies, is a locus for international gender research, is host to the distinguished Diane Middlebrook and Carl Djerassi Visiting Professorship scheme and also runs a series of high-profile academic events including a number of public lectures, symposia and research seminars kindly supported by Cambridge University Press.
