Gender Studies is a transdisciplinary department engaging students in the study of gender and the intersection of gender with other substantive categories of analysis and identity, including race, sexuality, class, disability, and nationality. Our curriculum offerings push students beyond commonsense accounts of gender to examine its complex constructions in our different historical epochs, in various cultural arenas, and varying global processes. Gender Studies engages with a wide variety of innovative approaches and methodologies, broad in reach - yet unified through a critical angle of vision.
We are pleased to announce that publications by three Gender Studies Faculty have been selected as finalists for the 2014 Lambda Literary Book Awards. Faculty finalists are Marlon M. Bailey, Colin Johnson, and Visiting Assistant Professor Maria San Filippo. Winners will be announced on June 2, 2014.
