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

" While remembering can enable us to historicize contemporary exclusions and recognize our own 'implicatedness,' it can also serve a more hopeful purpose. If we start with the gendered lives and survival strategies of women and men, their uneven circulation and mobility stitch the Caribbean together in ways that make it impossible to insist on seperability over connection. The fact that earlier migration patterns tend to be heavily male, should not distract us from thinking about where the women went and what they did. "
