About

Postgraduate research in Sexuality and Gender Studies at University of Birmingham is a truly interdisciplinary collaboration, led by leading international academics from a range of disciplines, each bringing their specific expertise to the subject. 

Overview

Research at the  Sexuality and Gender Studies at University of Birmingham can focus on topics including: feminist theory, masculinity studies, queer theory, postcolonial theory, psychoanalysis, ethnography, sexology, and criminology. 

We offer two postgraduate research-only programmes, whether you are looking to complete your academic studies with a PhD or pursue your research at Masters level. 

Why study this course?

  • Cutting-edge work: Academic staff and postgraduate students at Birmingham engage in cutting-edge work in the areas of gender theory and feminism; LGBT and queer studies; and the critical history of medicine and sexual science (sexology, psychiatry). Since we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary work, it is possible to arrange joint supervision involving staff from other departments, thereby giving you access to a broader knowledge base and maximising the quality and originality of your work.
  • Outside the academy: We engage with policy-making, activism and social justice work outside the academy.
  • Research opportunities: You will develop your research project within an active and friendly postgraduate community. Postgraduates are offered opportunities to present work-in-progress at Departmental Research Seminars and at the School Postgraduate Forum. Roles is a popular reading and research group that brings together postgraduate students from across the University with an interest in Sexuality and Gender Studies. For several years, Roles has hosted a successful annual conference, organised by postgraduate students.
