Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Research Group
Aberystwyth University’s Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Research Group (IGSRG) is an interdepartmental research group, based between the Department of International Politics, the Department of Psychology, the Department of Law and Criminology and the School of Art, which focuses specifically on questions relating to feminism, queer theory, and gender. The goal of the group is to bring together students and members of staff from different departments within Aberystwyth University who have common interests. We offer an interdisciplinary forum for discussion, networking, personal and professional development, and a more general exchange of ideas. Beyond the immediate realm of Aberystwyth University, we also aim to establish further networks with interested people studying or working in other universities and institutions, including artists and activists. Such dialogues raise both awareness and questions for the themes present in our research. Following on from the success of the past few years, we seek to consolidate and further relationships with individuals and groups working on issues relating to gender.
