About the Centre for Gender History
The Centre for Gender History was established in 2008. It brings together staff and students from History and Economic & Social History as well as cognate areas within the University and partners in other institutions. Our research interests traverse the medieval period to the present day. Glasgow University has the largest concentration of gender historians in Britain and therefore offers unparalleled opportunities for postgraduate research in this field.
The Centre supports a vibrant research community of masters and doctoral students. Members teach a Masters module on 'Gender, Politics and Power' available to students on a variety of Masters courses and contribute to postgraduate teaching more generally. Our large cohort of PhD students, the majority externally funded (ESRC, AHRC, ORS), organise the Hufton Seminar on Gender History.
The Centre hosted the Women's History Network Conference in September 2008 and sponsors a regular seminar series on Gender History. Arising from the conference a special issue of the Women's History Review has been produced, 'Women and Lifecycles, Gender and Generations'.
Major international journal comes to Glasgow: the leading international journal Gender & History is now edited from the Centre for Gender History at Glasgow University.
