Faculty of Social Sciences
At the Faculty of Social Sciences, we study Gender and Diversity from a multitude of disciplinary backgrounds – Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Pedagogy, Sexuality studies - and use a multi-methodological approach. Building on the solid foundation of over 30 years of multidisciplinary research on gender at Radboud University, researchers actively strive to deepen their understanding by inviting insights and critiques from different disciplinary perspectives. The main research focus is to unravel societal workings of gender and diversity, starting from the premise that social categories such as gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class and age continually show to be a crucial factor in the structuring of society and culture.
Currently research is conducted with a focus on gender and diversity in education, sexuality from a cultural perspective, sexual and reproductive health rights, inequality and inclusion on the labour market, gender and islam, and gender and migration.
