Centre for Gender, Identity and Subjectivity


Graduate courses in this field
Research Aims

We promote an intellectually compelling programme of events from which to build research applications, facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration, and stimulate graduate research in these areas.

CGIS is in the process of establishing gender, identity and subjectivity as major themes of historical research for which Oxford is known internationally and is particularly keen to encourage co-operation between historians of different periods, as well as places, whose research touches upon any aspect of these fields. It will also encourage interdisciplinary collaboration by connecting researchers across the University whose work is relevant to these areas. Our long-term aim is to link the lively research community of Oxford with other international projects and centres of research excellence. We will exploit virtual technologies and resources (e.g. podcasts, video-conferencing, video-recording) to enable long-distance collaboration and to connect different research communities both at Oxford and beyond.
