Research. Teaching. Impact.
Welcome to the Gender Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London.
Founded in 2020 with funding from the British Academy, the Gender Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London looks to become a hub for study, teaching, learning, and activism about gender and sexuality on campus. The Institute has three primary goals: to support faculty and student research and research collaboration in the study of gender and sexuality, to support teaching and learning of and around gender and sexuality, and to produce resources for community engagement and impact around gender and sexuality.
As we build our programming, the Gender Institute is interested in what members of the Royal Holloway Community would like the Institute to provide, how members of the community would like to be involved, and how Royal Holloway's students and staff see its Gender Institute. Please email us, and/or fill out our stakeholder survey!
Each month for the 2022-2023 Academic Year, The Gender Institute will be featuring a scholar who studies gender at Royal Holloway, including information about the scholar on our page, social media blasts, and a talk!
