SeRGJ Visiting Programme

The Centre for Sexuality, Race and Gender Justice (SeRGJ) welcomes applications from scholars wishing to visit SeRGJ for two to four weeks during the UK academic year (with applications for longer visits also considered).  Applicants should have an established record in critical, interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged and policy-relevant research relating to law, gender, sexuality and governance (broadly defined) and should be pursuing a specific research project while at SeRGJ. Visitors are expected to play an active role in SeRGJ during the period of their appointment.

What we offer Visiting Scholars:

  • Office space
  • Computer with internet and email access
  • Local telephone line
  • Library access
  • Reasonable access to fax and photocopying
  • In certain circumstances, assistance with travel/relocation

What we expect from Visiting Scholars:

  • One seminar to SeRGJ members
  • If possible within the current teaching programme, one guest lecture to undergraduates and postgraduates in the relevant module
  • Active participation in SeRGJ events, including staff seminars

Financial Assistance

SeRGJ will consider applications for financial assistance to cover associated UK based travel, accommodation and/or subsistence costs from visitors coming from the global south and non-affiliated or non-contracted practitioners. Visitors with access to institutional or other funds should apply to these.


Applications should be sent to Kent Law School’s Research Support Team (KLSResearch@kent.ac.uk) and should include:

  • A full CV
  • A short explanation of the reasons for the proposed visit, the research project being pursued and why SeRGJ is the appropriate place to pursue it, and the length of visit proposed
  • Copies of relevant publications
  • If financial assistance is being sought, a statement explaining why support from the applicant’s own institution or other external funders for this visit is not available
