Research Centers



Center for Feminist Research

CFR works in partnership with Gender and Sexuality Studies to create research opportunities for the study of race, gender, sexuality, coloniality, and feminism. Our seminars, workshops, conferences, and informal gatherings bring together scholars, students, artists, musicians, filmmakers, and members of the greater Los Angeles community who share interests and concerns about the operations of systemic oppression, managed depletion, and modalities of enclosure that structure, imbricate, and materialize bodies, neighborhoods, societies, and worlds.


Consortium for Gender, Sexuality, Race and Public Culture

This faculty-led initiative brings together researchers from across USC to explore and contextualize shifts in gender, race and sexuality in pop culture, while also translating our research to the public square. We aim not only to solve problems that might seem complex and remote to the public, but that are instead accessible to all of us, rooted in the cultures of our everyday lives, and in the languages of our everyday lives. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Consortium is functioning as a start-up podcast network within the Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies, and working with both faculty and students to produce informative audio stories in multiple genres.
