Research Resources

Students and faculty in the Department of Global Gender and Sexuality Studies are encouraged to make use of these and other University at Buffalo resources:

Gender Institute
A university-wide research center founded in 1997, the Gender Institute promotes research and teaching related to women, gender and sexuality. The Gender Institute offers grants and awards to faculty and students to support scholarship on women and on the intricate connections between gender and other social forces, such as sexuality, race, class, health, age, religion and place. They convene interdisciplinary networks and organize lectures, workshops, conferences, film screenings, art exhibitions and community events.

Humanities Institute
Since its founding in 2005, the University at Buffalo’s Humanities Institute (HI) has quickly established itself as one of the most important entities supporting the humanities in Western New York. Scholarship in the humanities helps us to question, comprehend and transform an increasingly complex world. The most intractable human problems cannot be solved from within a single discipline, but must be approached from a variety of perspectives. HI provides a forum for conversations among humanists of all disciplines.

Center for Disability Studies
The Center for Disability Studies adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the study of disability as a social justice concern, focusing on disability as a category of analysis and a lived embodiment and emphasizing the diverse experiences of disabled people in various times and locations.

Immigrant and Refugee Research Institute (IRRI)
The vision of IRRI is to create and share practical knowledge on immigrants and refugees and to improve their lives in the region, in the nation and in the world, with a particular focus on refugee issues in collaboration with Western New York newcomer communities. Based on human rights perspectives, the members of the IRRI utilize research as a tool to sustain the dignity of every immigrant and refugee.

Center for Excellence in Writing
The Center for Excellence in Writing supports UB students, faculty and staff through peer consulting services, workshops, presentations, and hosting special programs.

Library Video Recording Studios and Equipment Loan
A wide variety of media and technology equipment is available for loan to current UB students, faculty and staff. Moreover, you can use Video Recording Studios in Silverman Library to create video presentations, interviews or short class projects in a fast and easy way.

Feminist Research Alliance
Founded in 2010, the Feminist Research Alliance Workshop advances and energizes interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration among feminist scholars locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. 

GSA Editing Workshop
These services are offered to graduate students who are preparing term papers, theses, dissertations, articles for publication and other writing projects.

The Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy
The Baldy Center for Law and Social Policy at the University at Buffalo School of Law is an endowed academic center for interdisciplinary research on law and legal institutions. The mission of The Baldy Center is to advance interdisciplinary research on law, legal institutions, and social policy. It does so by supporting research projects, conferences, workshops, fellowships, visiting scholars, speakers, grant proposals, and other promising initiatives.
