St Andrews Institute for Gender Studies – Launch and reception
The newly formed St Andrews Institute for Gender Studies (StAIGS) brings together staff from across the University with research interests in gender.
Please join us on Tuesday 4 December 2018 for the official launch of the institute and our inaugural event.
The event will begin with an introduction by Principal Sally Mapstone, who is a member of the StAIGS’ Management Committee. This will be followed by a flash workshop where some of our academic affiliates will introduce the ways in which gender studies connects to their research. The event will conclude with a networking reception with refreshments.

Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research, encompassing the study of issues that range from feminism and women’s studies to masculine studies, queer theory, and sexuality studies. Gender Studies is deeply committed to an intersectional analysis of the phenomena it examines, understanding that gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, power, and inequality are inextricably connected.
