Centre for Gender Studies
The Centre for Gender Studies (CGS) at the Faculty of Arts promotes research and education on gender in relation to other categories of difference such as sexuality, class, race, religion, culture, ability, and age.
The CGS aims to be a hub connecting gender specialists within the University of Groningen (UG) as well as institutions and groups outside the university. Because the CGS regards valorization as an important component of the UG’s role, we assist staff members and students in making gender research and education more visible. The CGS regularly organises lectures, workshops, symposia or other events both in and outside university. Proposals for gender-related events are always welcome.
