Calls For Papers & Other Academic Opportunities:
University College Dublin, MA & Graduate Diploma in Gender Studies
Our MA and Graduate Diploma in Gender Studies, UCD explores current debates on gender and social justice as well as new theoretical perspectives on gender and feminism. The MA & Graduate Diploma in Gender Studies encompasses gender studies, feminism, masculinities and sexualities and has developed over twenty-five years to become the most established gender studies programme in Ireland, indeed in the EU, with a strong international reputation for research and scholarship. Our programme offers students an opportunity to engage with a vibrant international field of study as we seek to interrogate the complexity of gender and sex roles, feminism, identities, policies, history and politics within a rapidly evolving social world. We look at the ways in which gender, social class, ethnicity and disability intersect within a global context of institutional racism, environmental degradation and increasing inequality.
