Welcome to the Centre for Gender History

Welcome to the Centre for Gender History

The Centre for Gender History was established in 2008. We bring together staff and students from History, Economic & Social History, Modern Languages and other areas within the University as well as partners in other local institutions, among which the Glasgow Women's Library. Our research interests traverse the medieval period to the present day.

The University of Glasgow has the largest concentration of gender historians in Britain and therefore offers unparalleled opportunities for research in this field. The Centre offers a Masters degree on Gender History and it runs a postgraduate taught programme, thus supporting a vibrant research community of masters and doctoral students.

The Centre also hosts an annual public engagement workshop and a research seminar series, where junior and senior researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds can showcast their projects or share their work in progress with a broad audience. The seminars are frequently organized in conjunction with other departments and research centres, including the School of Modern Languages and Cultures, the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research and the Centre for Scottish and Celtic Studies.

The major international journal Gender & History is edited from the Centre.
