Research & Faculty

The Center has gained national visibility as a dynamic and influential program doing cutting-edge research in the field. We draw on a strong network of scholars at Chicago working on gender and sexuality across the disciplines, and who come from departments, committees, and professional schools dispersed throughout the University. We share a commitment to supporting work in the study of gender and sexuality in our own, and across different, fields even when our major course offerings are not directly gender or sexuality courses, and we invite you to join us.

If you are a member of the UChicago faculty and are interested in participating in work in gender and sexuality studies, please contact Executive Director Gina Olson at golson@uchicago.edu for more information. In addition to receiving invitations to special faculty events, you may join an existing or establish a new project at the Center, apply for our annual Faculty Fellows program, teach in the Problems in Gender and Sexuality Studies sequence, crosslist your courses, assist students with relevant course research, and/or direct BA Essays, master's essays or PhD dissertations in the field of gender and sexuality studies.
