Gender and Sexualities Interdisciplinary Network
The Gender and Sexualities Interdisciplinary Network (GSIN) is a newly established network that brings together researchers at the University of Glasgow with an interest in gender and sexualities broadly construed. It is an initiative led by the Addressing Inequalities Interdisciplinary Research Theme in the College of Social Sciences, with the aim of fostering collaborative research across and beyond the University of Glasgow. We aim to create a vibrant and collaborative research community dedicated to advancing knowledge and good practices in the fields of gender and sexualities from different disciplines.
Our primary objective is to facilitate meaningful connections and fruitful collaborations among academics, PGR students, and stakeholders with an interest in gender studies, feminism, LGBTQ+ studies, and social justice. To achieve our goals, we organise in-person and on-line events that provide an inclusive and welcoming space for GSIN members. These events serve as opportunities for networking, socialising, knowledge exchange and sharing research expertise. We run work-in-progress sessions for staff to disseminate and test new ideas in a collaborative environment, and we regularly host members of local community groups, organisations, and charities to share their experiences and initiatives with us. We also provide specialised support to colleagues seeking academic funding for their research projects in areas that are relevant to the GSIN. This support includes flagging relevant funding calls to members of the network and assisting throughout the funding application process.
