Centre update

News and Events

As you may know, Karen Throsby stepped down as CIGS Director in the summer to take on a new role as Associate Dean for EDI in the Faculty.  Unfortunately, a new director has not yet been appointed. Consequently, in the absence of a workloaded director to lead and co-ordinate activities, CIGS is currently inactive and unable to host its usual programme of events including seminars, reading groups and writing sessions. We continue to hope that this situation will be resolved soon and we will update members when we have any news.

The MA Gender Studies programme is still running, and we are very happy to circulate details of any events via the mailing list. Please email Karen if you have any gender-related events you would like us to share (

We are sorry to share this news but we hope to be back soon. Thank you for all your support of CIGS.
