Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies - IGSF
For more about IGSF
IGSF came into being at the end of March 2009, as an academic unit in the Faculty of Arts. We aim to stimulate, support and disseminate research in gender, sexual diversity, and feminist studies. Our research activities focus on five axes, all interdisciplinary. IGSF is also the administrative site for McGill's Sexual Diversity Studies Program and the Women's Studies Program, and part of our mission is to train graduate students in these fields (through the Graduate Option in Gender and Women's Studies). The Institute has a Director, three administrative staff, and two academic appointments. IGSF organizes a number of public events each academic year, including symposia, public lectures, workshops and a seminar series. We also host visiting scholars, support student organizations, and work with community groups.
