PhD Women and Gender Studies

We welcome applications to study in the area of Women and Gender Studies at postgraduate level, either specialising in Interdisciplinary Gender Studies or Gender and International Development in the ESRC-recognised MA in Social Research or the MA in Gender and International Development or as an MPhil/PhD in Women's and Gender Studies.

Women and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary area of study which draws on Sociology and other social science disciplines as well as those which are located in the humanities such as English and History. It encompasses a wide area of interests ranging from investigations into the ways in which society is structured to explorations of cultural representations and texts. A central concern is to analyse how different bases of inequality and identity, such as race, gender and class, intersect with each other. This area of study emerged from the women's movements of the 1960s and 1970s and is now a well-established part of the university curriculum. In Warwick the Centre is located in the Department of Sociology but draws its membership from across the university and from many different disciplines, reflecting its interdisciplinary nature.

Our graduate students are actively involved in the Centre and, amongst other things, organise a regular series of seminars. This provides a safe space to present papers whilst engaged in doctoral research. We are interested in supervising graduate students researching a wide range of topics. We have particular expertise in gender and sexualities; the body; families and households; paid and unpaid work; gender and migration; gender and politics; gender and development; education; gender and violence; feminist social movements; feminist theory and methods; Black feminist thought; feminist media and cultural studies; food policy.
