The Department of WGST, in addition to UNC’s AAAD Department, has been awarded grants through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s new Affirming Multivocal Humanities initiative.

“The department of women’s and gender studies will undertake several projects related to social justice issues under the Mellon grant, including an April 12 event, “Black Queerness and the Everyday,” at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham. The department will also host a retreat for women’s and gender studies faculty leaders across the state to discuss and brainstorm ways to collaborate with one another. Course development funds will support a new undergraduate course on feminist food politics and justice, and the department plans a keynote lecture highlighting a major feminist scholar-activist.”
