Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender


About the Programme

The Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender at the University of Brighton homes internationally-recognised scholars who work in a wide range of fields intersecting with the study of genders, sexualities and social change across the Arts and Humanities, Health and Social Sciences.

We invite prospective doctoral students who are interested in innovative and interdisciplinary gender and sexualities research across our three key themes:

  • LGBTQ lives research
  • Sex, sexuality and health
  • Digital sexualities.

We are committed to cutting edge research and community engagement that impacts on policy and practice. Many of our researchers have a shared commitment to feminist, post-structuralist and queer theoretical approaches and use a variety of methodologies that are participatory, visual and creative. The Centre has a thriving early career researcher community and students benefit from a rich programme of invited speakers, workshops, reading groups and networking events. We host several national and international conferences every year. PhD students will have access to the Research Centre's own methodological space, The Creative Methods Lab, where researchers meet to develop and conduct research, using state-of the-art visual and audio recording equipment.
