IGDS: NBU's Unique Offering

The IGDS: NBU provides a strong foundation for trans-, multi- and inter-disciplinary research on women, men and gender. Our offerings are tailored to meet the specific needs of students and partners to ensure the Institute remains relevant while maintaining its commitment to excellent research, teaching and outreach.
In our undergraduate, graduate, diploma and certificate programmes, students unravel the complexity of Caribbean gender relations in all aspects of daily life. Teaching is guided by feminist theories and gender & development perspectives, principles, practices and research.
 

Quotes

" Homosexuality has always, and will always, pose a problem for hegemonic masculinity. Homosexuality represents one of the biggest challenges to masculinity because it refuses to conform to those dominant ideas about what is a man, how he should behave and whether there is only one way of understanding masculinity. The fact of the matter is that men do not stop being men because of the sex of the person with whom they sleep. "
Unsettling Masculinity in the Caribbean- Facing a Future without Guarantees, Linden Lewis
