UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking - Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) (http://sl.ugr.es/0bsW).

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group:

The Women’s and Gender Studies Institute (Instituto Universitario de Investigación de Estudios de las Mujeres y de Género- IIEMG. http://imujer.ugr.es/), based at the University of Granada, is a multidisciplinary research institute that develops and promotes Women’s, Feminist and Gender Studies. Its main goals include the enhancement of scientific and technical research, the establishment of national and international networks aimed at the production of new lines of investigation and the inclusion of a gender perspective in different fields of knowledge. The Institute has contributed to the development of academic feminism from a theoretical and practical approach, managing and participating in several research projects; conducting courses and conferences; and introducing gender-sensitive subjects in several curriculums. The Institute has successfully set up academic publications and programs, such as the FEMINAE monographs collection, the Arenal Journal (the only national journal regarding Women´s History), the first MED CAMPUS program of Women´s Studies and innovative projects in collaboration with Hispanic American universities within the Alfa program. Among its educational accomplishments, we should highlight the creation of the Doctoral Program in “Women’s studies. Gender discourses and practices” and the coordination of the first and only Erasmus Mundus Master’s Degree in Women’s and Gender Studies: an excellence program which has been selected three consecutive times as a reference Master in Women´s and Gender Studies in Europe by the European Commission.

Project description:

Within the Women’s and Gender Studies Institute, the Research Group SEJ430 Other Feminist Perspectives in Social Research (Otras Perspectivas Feministas en Investigación Social) is a successfully recognized innovative space for the advancement of social research (see DEVA’s report-Direction of Evaluation and Accreditation of the Andalusian Knowledge Agency). The Research Group is pioneer in developing crucial research areas that have impacted public policy in relation to relevant phenomena such as the migration crisis and the construction of citizenship from the periphery (Gregorio y Arribas 2008, Gregorio & Agrela 2002), the care crisis (Gregorio 2009, 2017), and gender and sexual violence (Gregorio 2004, Espinosa 2010, Alcazar 2010, Suess 2016). One of its main focus is the exploration of violence and intersectionality, in the analysis of gender violence intersecting with age, sexuality, nationality, and ethnicity. Underpinning this research, the Research Group has specialized in the use of qualitative methodology from feminist and decolonial approaches. In this regard, it has been of chief importance the ongoing collaborative work with Iberoamerican universities. The group is part of the network Iberoamerican Lab for the Sociohistorical Research on Sexualities LIESS (https://red-liess.org), with a focus on violence and sexual diversity, and of the Iberoamerican Network of Collaborative Engaged Ethnographies RIDEC. Particularly fruitful have been the links being established in Colombia with universities Universidad Nacional de Bogotá and Universidad del Valle in Cali. Research carried out by members of the Research Group in the Colombian context have explored interconnected violences and have critically reflected on methodological questions in feminist epistemology.
