Gender, Sexualities & Cultural Studies


The research areas of gender, sexualities and cultural studies are brought together by an interest in the politics of everyday life. Broadly speaking, our interest lies in the everyday ways in which adults and young people embody, perform and express gendered and sexualised identities in varying contexts. Scholars in this SIG address the cultural politics that accrue in relation to identity work and explore how different practices and identifications shape experiences and interpretations of schooling, youth and identity categories.
