The Beatrice Bain Research Group (BBRG) is the University of California, Berkeley’s critical feminist research center, and is the keystone research program within the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies. Each year BBRG hosts approximately 25 visiting scholars from around the globe whose research is centrally on women and gender. In addition, BBRG organizes public scholarly panels on cutting edge topics in the field of gender studies.
 
Established in 1986 to support and coordinate feminist scholarship across disciplines, the BBRG fosters research on gender and women, and is particularly interested in enabling research on gender in its intersections with sexuality, race, class, nation, religion, post-coloniality and transnational feminisms.
