The Gender Reading Group
One of the main activities of the Gender and Politics Research Group is hosting the long-running Gender Reading Group (GRG), which draws upon feminist and gender researchers from the University as well as colleagues from other Scottish universities. The GRG provides a forum to discuss theoretical, methodological and empirical issues around the questions:
- What Is Gender?
- How Can We Research Gender?
See past GRG programmes.
