As an interdisciplinary centre, the CGS aims to encourage and develop diverse understanding concerning the social category of gender as well as its intersection with other social categories such as age, class, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion and sexuality. This diversity of understanding is evidenced in its annual research seminar series, open to the public, which hosts prominent figures in the field and showcases recent advances in gender studies.
