Gender Studies

Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the biological, social and cultural construction of femininity, masculinity, sexuality and the ways we locate ourselves within gender systems. Interacting with factors such as race and class, gender structures the activities into which we enter in all aspects of life.

Students interested in a Gender Studies Minor should contact the Director and/or one of the sponsoring faculty.

One of the highlights of the spring semester is the annual Gender Studies Symposium, organized by a committee of students, with support from faculty and staff.

  • Image preview 7:00pm: Ethnic Studies Forum on General Education and Diversity

    This forum will provide a space for discussing how we can accomplish the goal of prioritizing diversity in General Education.

     • What do we mean by diversity?

    • How can we guarantee that all students graduating from L&C grapple with issues of      cultural difference and social power?

    • Should exploring diversity be one of the goals of a core class like E & D?
