Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality (BiGS)
Founded in 2008, Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality aims to foster and showcase interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange in gender and sexuality studies. Situated within Birkbeck Institute for Social Research, and currently funded by the Schools of Arts, Law, and Social Sciences, History and Philosophy, Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality brings together scholars working across the college and encourages dialogue with practitioners in the creative industries as well as with non-academic constituencies.
Birkbeck has a long history of world-leading research in gender and sexuality, and Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality strives to promote and advance that rich legacy through its activities which typically include a vibrant programme of workshops, screenings, performances, readings, lectures and seminars.
Highlights in recent years have included the symposium Bowie at Birkbeck, the Feminist Emergency International Conference, and workshops on gendering austerity. Birkbeck Gender and Sexuality encourages dialogue with practitioners, policy makers, activists and artists and welcome suggestions for collaborations from colleagues across Birkbeck's departments and schools.
