The Archives Subject Guide

The Archives Subject Guide was created by the GRG and the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Research Group (with the financial support of the Newcastle Institute for Social Renewal).

There is a focus on gender and early modern topics, but there are listings for other items as well.  

The Archive Subject Guide draws together material from:

The Gender Research Group

The Gender Research Group brings together the large number of scholars from different subject areas who work on what has become a strong feature of scholarly activity at Newcastle University, building on the work accomplished by the former successful Centre for Gender and Women’s Studies.  It is one of the Humanities and Social Sciences Faculty Research Development Groups.

A critical category of analysis for international research, engagement and collaboration, gender is now a key factor of research impact on society in Medicine and in Sciences as well as in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

The Gender Research Group brings together scholars primarily, but not exclusively, from within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, including Arts, Law, Culture and Music, Education, English, Geography, History, Modern Languages, Politics, Sociology.

The purpose of the GRG is to organise events that bring together scholars from these diverse sub-groups to strengthen the impact of their research and to create new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration and methods of inquiry.

Visit the Gender Research Group Facebook page to comment on the events and themes of the Research Group.

n.b.: The GRG understands the field of Gender Studies to be wide and diverse, and brings together scholars with working on gender, sex, sexuality, studies of the body, and/or intersections between these.
