The Graduate Gender Programme, also known as GGeP, was founded in 1988 as a department for Women’s Studies offering an interdisciplinary programme for students in the Faculty of Arts at Utrecht University. The programme is part of a university-wide network of Gender Studies teachers, researchers and students. Based on student activism, pioneering feminist research and educational innovation, the programme developed into a national and international centre for research, PhD training, academic teaching and political engagement in the field of women, gender and ethnicity.
GGeP is one of the largest Gender Studies groups in Europe and offers one of its most advanced interdisciplinary teaching and research programmes in the humanities. GGeP has a long-standing international reputation for its pioneering work setting up the infrastructure for the academic field in Europe.
It is the ambition of GGeP to be at the forefront of feminist and postcolonial theory. The programme develops critical perspectives in the fields of literary and visual studies, new media, science, and technology studies, human rights and post-humanism, history and the colonial archive, and the ‘turns’ in the humanities.
The Graduate Gender Programme hosts the most comprehensive Gender and Women’s Studies programme in the Netherlands. It is responsible for the two minors, the Master Gender Studies, the Research Master Gender Studies and the Erasmus Mundus Master in Gender and Women’s Studies GEMMA.
