Gender study

Redirected from Gender studies

Gender studies is a term used to refer to theoretical work in the social sciences and/or humanities that focuses on issues of sex and gender in language and society, and often addresses related issues including racial and ethnic oppression[?], postcolonial[?] societies, and globalization.

Work in gender studies is often associated with work in feminist theory[?], queer studies, and other theoretical aspects of cultural studies. While work in gender studies is principally found in humanities departments and publications (in areas such as English literature and other literary studies), it is also found in social-scientific areas such as anthropology, sociology, and psychology.
