About

Gender studies is an exciting area of research, exploring gender relations in the past, present and future. This Gender Studies programme at the University of Leeds takes a transnational view, engaging with decoloniality to tackle some of the most pressing social issues of our modern lives.

Overview

The programme will give you a thorough intellectual grounding in feminist scholarship, including both the foundational and canonical texts to which contemporary feminist scholarship owes its legacy, alongside current debates and developments. The course is dedicated to privileging transnational, indigenous and marginalised feminist knowledge, disrupting the narrative of dominant Western perspectives that have frequently come to define feminist scholarship.

Supported by our Centre for Interdisciplinary Gender Studies , and drawing on teaching expertise from around the University, you’ll be able to explore approaches from across a range of academic disciplines. You’ll learn the principles of conducting research on gender and examine issues that both shape and are shaped by gender relations, such as family roles, reproductive technologies, citizenship, sexuality and culture.

Core modules in gender theory and research will lay these foundations, and you’ll build on them by choosing from a range of options on topics such as gendered embodiment, gender and media, racism, decoloniality and migration, and religion and sexuality. There has never been a more exciting time to study gender, and this programme will give you an insight into this vital and fascinating field.
