Gender, Culture & Society Seminars @ UL Spring 2009

Posted on May 15, 2009 by Administrator

The Gender, Culture & Society (GCS) seminar series at the University of Limerick, Ireland, runs in tandem with the new MA in Gender, Culture and Society, convened by Women’s Studies in the Department of Sociology. GCS aims to revisit debates within gender and sexuality studies in order to celebrate, challenge and rethink them by pushing the field in new directions. GCS is committed to supporting highly theoretical work and pioneering efforts in the areas of gender and sexuality. All speakers are invited and include thinkers whose work has had or will have a formidable influence on the development of critical theory and gender and sexuality. The emphasis is on discussion.
