“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Welcome!

The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS) at New York University celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2009-2010. We are one of the few centers in the U.S. with a named emphasis on both gender and sexuality. CSGS facilitates a broad interdisciplinary investigation of gender and sexuality as keys to understanding human experience.

CSGS organizes events throughout the academic year, including seminars, panel discussions, film screenings, and conferences. These events are all open to the public and provide a vital and lively meeting-place where scholars, students, artists, and activists can discuss issues involving gender and sexuality, and their intersections with other social phenomena such as race, religion, nation, class, ability/disability, and ethnicity. The Center also co-sponsors events and conferences with schools and departments at NYU, and with other universities in the New York area.

Although our programming supports the teaching and research of scholars and students in gender and sexuality studies, CSGS does not offer degrees or courses. For information about undergraduate degrees in gender and sexuality studies at NYU, go to the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies. There is also an MA in Gender Politics offered by NYU’s John W. Draper Interdisciplinary Master’s Program in Humanities and Social Thought, and NYU’s Department of History master’s program includes a field in the History of Women and Gender.

We typically host one global visiting scholar each year, by invitation.
