Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, NYU
Founded in fall 1999, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS) at New York University conducts a broad interdisciplinary investigation of gender and sexuality as keys to understanding human experience.
We accomplish our work through a research institute and undergraduate academic programming. We are among the few centers in the U.S. with a named emphasis on both gender and sexuality. We fully integrate the study of gender and sexuality in our core curriculum; moreover, we insistently extend our view beyond U.S. borders. Because of the analytic pressure we put on both categories in a transnational frame, we are changing the ways in which gender and sexuality are discussed in academia and with the public at large.

Opportunities, Grants & Fellowships
In partnership with several Italian scholars, UCSBs department of religious studies gathered experts to discuss the way religious thought intersects with political legislation and action, particularly in the realm of sexuality. On this installment of Church, Sex, and the Public Sphere: Italy and the United States, Ann Pellegrini, Professor of Religious Studies at New York University, argues that the government should stay out of the regulation of morality Series (Voices, 11/2008).
