Beatrice Bain Research Group
The Beatrice Bain Research Group (BBRG) is the University of California at Berkeley's research center on gender and women, established in 1986. The BBRG is particularly interested in enabling research on gender in its intersections with sexuality, race, class, nation, religion, postcoloniality and transnational feminisms. To meet the needs of its various constituencies, the BBRG engages in a range of activities. These include: the Scholars In Residence Program; the Affiliated Scholars Program; Scholars in Residence Panels; Invited Lectures Series; and co-sponsorship with other research units, departments and organizations on campus of conferences, lectures and other events with feminist content.
