Humanities and Gender
Gender studies represent a field of research where the scholarship is necessarily transdisciplinary. From its inception, the Institute for Humanities Research has supported a diverse array of projects with gender studies at their core. Gender and Sustainability, Religion, Reform and Gender, Gender and Law Reform in Sudan, Gender, Language and Visual Culture in 21st Century Comparative Literature, and Gender, Sexuality and the Media represent a sampling of the projects undertaken with funding from the IHR.
In 2007 The Reverend Jenny Norton provided an endowment for the IHR to support an annual Research Cluster focusing on gender. The Norton fund is designed to stimulate research on women in any field and on any topic.
