Women's, Gender, and Sexual Studies

Gender and sexuality are fundamental categories of social organization and power. Our program examines gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, ethnicity, class, nationality, ability, and other sites of social inequality. Our students critique and evaluate these relations of power within a transnational context. As a discipline grounded in women’s studies, we seek to make visible women’s contributions and struggles. We affirm a feminist commitment to social justice and engaged citizenship. Feminist and queer theories inform our work as we collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to transform knowledge, practices, and institutions.
