Sexuality and Gender Research Group

The Sexuality and Gender Research Group brings together researchers from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities with scholars in other disciplines from around the university to discuss questions of sexuality and gender from a variety of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and cross-disciplinary perspectives.

Every year, the Sexuality and Gender Research Group, in conjunction with the Western Queer Caucus, hosts a number of academic talks. Our major effort every year, however, lies in organizing Queer Research Day, a full-day event involving both papers and poster presentations. Queer Research Day is normally held on the third Wednesday in April. The date is announced each year in November and a call for papers and posters is sent out in February. Other initiatives in the areas of sexuality and gender would be very welcome. If you are interested in organizing something, please do let us know.

Membership in the Sexuality and Gender Research Group is open to faculty and graduate students. However, all of our events are free and open to all members of the Western community. For more information, please contact Wendy Pearson or Susan Knabe.
