The centre aims to strengthen and consolidate cutting edge research and teaching of its researchers and PhD-affiliates. At the same time the centre functions as a hub at the UvA where new questions and collaborations are generated.The centre organizes monthly lectures with internationally renowned scholars as well as seminars, public debates, roundtables, conferences and workshops. ARC-GS also offers visiting scholars a lively intellectual community for scholarly debate and exchange.
This community is shaped by many differences in disciplinary contexts and traditions, different theoretical and epistemological approaches, different methodologies, and also differences in emphasis on gender or sexuality within one’s research, and we are committed to make this an expansive community – where such differences are welcomed and provide fertile ground for conversations and new questions and ways of thinking. The centre is also committed to fostering intersectional approaches to gender and sexuality, and seeks to attend in particular to questions of material inequalities and social class on the one hand, and questions of race and (institutional) racism on the other.
The research centre organizes various kinds activities, including monthly lectures with internationally renowned scholars to seminars, public debates, roundtables, international conferences, and workshops. ARC-GS has a vibrant PhD community and also hosts visiting scholars within a lively intellectual community for scholarly debate and exchange.
