The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS) is 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.
We also host visiting scholars from other universities.
