Presentation of research activity or teaching

ADHUC–Centre de Recerca Teoria, Gènere, Sexualitat was founded in 2016, following the resolution of the Consell de Govern of the Universitat de Barcelona of June 16. Helena González Fernández is the Director, appointed by the Rector, and Josefina Goberna Tricas is the Secretary.
Its main objective is to promote research on the theorization, practices and cultural representations of gender and sexual diversity in the fields of literature, cinema, the arts, philosophical thought, history and health, from Antiquity to the 21st century. The core of its research is the GRC Creació i pensament de les dones (CiPD), officially recognized in the announcements: SGR2005/00246 (2005-2008), SGR2009/647 (2009-2013) and 2014 SGR 44 (2014-2017). This GRC consists of three Universitat de Barcelona research groups with a long and highly productive trajectory in relation to the number and importance of their scientific activities, distribution and capacity since 1990: the Centre Dona i Literatura-Gènere, sexualitats i crítica de la cultura, the Seminari Filosofia i Gènere, and Tàcita Muta-Grup d’Estudis de Dones i Gènere a l’Antiguitat.
