Gender Critical Research Network

The Gender Critical Research Network brings together a range of academics and scholars who share a common interest in exploring how sexed bodies come to matter in their respective research fields. The network is also for those who share a common commitment to ensuring that a space within academia is kept open for rigorous exploration of issues of sex and gender, including critiques of gender norms and stereotypes and conceptual interrogation. We provide a hub through which theories and research can be shared and exchanged, via maximally accessible academic events and an active distribution list. We aim to foster evidence-based and rigorous research in this burgeoning field and explore ways to foster maximum knowledge exchange, impact on policy and ideas and dissemination.

We encourage membership from across all faculties and from outside the University. We also encourage involvement from PGR, academics and researchers who are interested to understand and know more about what is meant by gender critical research.
