Department of Gender Studies

The Department of Gender Studies is a small and dynamic department at Lund University, Sweden, that has expanded and developed its research profile since 1978. It has played a central role at Lund University in moving gender analysis from the margins in most disciplines to the centre of social and cultural analysis.

The Department conducts interdisciplinary research on the ways in which gender is configured locally and globally through interactions with sexuality, ethnicity/race, age, bodyableness, and class. By embracing multiple research traditions, the department is characterized by its broad research horizon.
