StAIGS was founded in 2018. In collaboration with the Graduate School, it will be welcoming its first class of MLitt students in Gender Studies in Autumn 2020. While housed within the Philosophy Department, StAIGS is unique in its approach as a deeply interdisciplinary research institute with more than 130 academic staff members from more than 20 different disciplines within the University of St Andrews.
StAIGS is strongly committed to an intersectional analysis of the phenomena it examines, understanding that gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, power, and inequality are inextricably connected.
Dr Alison Duncan Kerr is the Director of StAIGS. In addition to hosting and supporting workshops, conferences, and public events, StAIGS has several standing activities:
- Internal Interdisciplinary Speaker Series
- External Speaker Series
- Feminist Reading Group
- Feminist Film Series.
STAIGS is now accepting applications for an MLitt in Gender Studies.
