Led by Professor Susan Broomhall, the Gender and Women’s History Research Centre delivers new research energy and critical visibility to the University’s commitment to equity, diversity, accessibility, wellbeing and
sustainability, by signalling the importance of gender research exploring the experiences of a diverse array of women and men in times past.
With a strong focus from the early modern period to the present, the Centre expands upon established theories and research on the relationship of gender to power and the political contribution of women and men.
Further, it opens up innovative conversations with new geographies and methodologies to understand how gender ideologies and practices have informed the experiences of women and men in global circulations of people, ideas and things, and as they
interact with the environment and natural world.
