What We Do

The Gender Research Institute (GRID) encourages, facilitates, and showcases gender-related research, teaching, and social engagement that address why the 21st century is still a time profoundly structured by gender, racial, ethnic, and economic inequality.  GRID is a meeting ground where researchers, teachers, students, outreach professionals, and scholar-activists from across the globe come together to study, debate, and translate intellectual discussion and practical experience into projects of social justice on a multitude of local, national, and international scales.

Applicants may be from any academic discipline, provided that their research has a strong gender-related emphasis. While scholars at any stage of their career are eligible, we especially encourage applications from recent recipients of the Ph.D. or equivalent degree, especially scholars with strong theoretical expertise and interdisciplinary training.
