About Us

The Gender and Modernity Group is an inter-disciplinary research cluster based in the Department of Gender and Cultural Studies. GMG promotes research in the humanities and social sciences on gender across the key social, political and historical coordinates of modernity. Established in 2009, GMG has already hosted a Symposium on the work of Eve Sedgwick, including a roundtable discussion for postgraduates from around Australia. Over the next six months it will host international visiting speakers, including Professor Sara Ahmed (Goldsmiths) and Professor Rosalind Gill (Open University). It will also hold an interdisciplinary conference on gender and modernity, bringing together philosophers, historians, and those working in gender, cultural and literary studies.
