The Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies


The WGSS Department recognizes that gender and sexuality always operate in intersectional ways with other categories of identity, including race, ethnicity, and social class.  Our research and teaching explore how the meanings of these intersectional identities are created and transformed in specific historical, geographical, transnational, and cultural contexts.   We encourage students to think critically about gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and social class; engage in social justice issues; and challenge social inequality.

A student-run production of stories about abortion which aims to confront an often politically-divisive topic by asking us to simply listen. Join us for a weekend of powerful storytelling.
