Mind the gap underground sign


In recent months, attacks on gender and sexuality studies have increased in Europe, as addressed in an ECPG Roundtable earlier this year. With this in mind, we have brought together here work that embodies the importance of the field.

Find details about the latest books and journals from both Bristol University Press and Policy Press in this area below. 

Highlights include Work, Labour and Cleaning by Lotika Singha, the first book in our new Gender and Sociology series. This new series brings together high quality research in the areas of Gender and Sociology. Find out more.

We have also just launched our Feminist Perspectives on Work and Organization series, which will explore a range of issues around feminism, feminist theory and philosophy, and intersectional and decolonial feminist approaches applied to various contexts of formal and informal work and organization.

The European Journal of Politics and Gender and the Journal of Gender-Based Violence, provide essential reading. We have pulled together a collection of journal articles on Gender, from these and more of our journals.

Scroll down for book highlights, journal articles and articles from our blog, Transforming Society.
