Research Cluster

Feminism, Race and Gender

Thinking hard, thinking radically

This research cluster brings together academics from Philosophy.

Through regular forums such as the Race and Gender Colloquium, this group explores fast-moving and often highly contentious debates around race and gender as social categories and their political consequences.
