AHRC Research Centre for Law, Gender and Sexuality, University of Kent


Kent University in conjunction with Keele and Westminster Universities supports the Research Centre for Law, Gender and Sexuality. This centre has a postgraduate development and training program and has a strong focus on gender and law. The centre for LGS facilitates the analysis, investigation and understanding of the relationship between Law, Gender and Sexuality. It seeks to broaden this field of studies by using humanities methods (philosophical, historical, doctrinal, literary and cultural) to analyse legal issues relating to gender and sexuality. It also seeks to deepen theorisation of relations of inequality, in particular to explore how gender and sexuality intersect other social relations, including class, disability, ethnicity, and race.
