Welcome to Women’s and Gender Studies

Women’s and Gender Studies expands the process of knowledge production by considering what it means to take gender, race, class, and sexuality seriously in our explanations of the world. It provides a methodology that is interdisciplinary, multicultural, and feminist.

After starting thirty years ago as a small program with no permanent faculty, Women’s and Gender Studies is now a vibrant department with a broadly interdisciplinary faculty of nine ,specializing in fields including History, Global Studies, Sociology, Public Health, Anthropology, Political Science, Media Studies, Studio Art and Photography, and Literature and Literary Theory.
