The study of gender and sexuality is an exciting and expanding field in history, and an area of great strength for the UGA History Department.  Faculty offer classes at the undergraduate and graduate level in this thematic area, with temporal and geographic foci from the ancient to the modern world and across the globe.  Particular research strengths include the intersection of gender and sexuality with the issues of race, slavery, the family and citizenship.​
