sexgen is a collaborative interdisciplinary network bringing together gender and sexuality based research centres around the North of England and Scotland. We aim to bring academic research, writing and thinking on gender and sexuality into conversation with the ideas, cultural expressions and knowledges of community groups, cultural sites and activist organisations.

After a year off, sexgen will return for the 2018-2019 academic year, holding a series of free seminars. Seminars will be themed around current and emerging issues and debates in gender and sexuality studies.
