Gender Studies Network – Basic Links

This list is only preliminary and highly selective. Its aim is for a start to highlight Anglicist contributions, as the field is immense due to the strong interdisciplinary character of Women’s and Gender Studies and due to the size of Europe. (ESSE currently has more than 30 member states.) A maximum of two sites is given per country. First choice are associations or journals with an explicit Anglicist WGS orientation. If they are missing, WGS associations, journals or book series have been chosen in which scholars from English Studies play an important role or whose emphases are particularly close to English Studies. Occasionally, interdisciplinary research centres, courses of study or projects are also included.

(Please don’t forget to consult the homepages of the ESSE constituent associations.)
