At a time when cultures across the globe are polarizing along ideological lines, the Department of Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies educates students, at all levels, to think in nuanced manners about the production of systems of inequality and injustice.  This involves research into many of the most profound and urgent challenges of our contemporary times.  With a faculty spanning nine different disciplines, we generate interdisciplinary scholarship and transformative pedagogies to address a wide range of complex social problems and questions.  Staying true to our roots in the feminist, anti-racist, and queer social movements of the 1960s, we in WGSS remain committed to the long project of cultivating societies wherein all nonviolent modes of living can flourish.
