Sussex has a long-established reputation for research excellence in the broad field of gender studies. From trans-activism to pro-anorexia websites and from LGBTQ family-making to homonationalism – our postgraduate students are engaged in cutting-edge research.

  • identities and subcultures

  • digital media
  • LGBT and queer studies
  • gender and cultural forms
