Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies draws on the humanities, arts, and social and biological sciences to explore the broad range of intellectual questions concerning both the social positions of women, men, and gender non-conforming people and the gendered constructions of knowledge, identity, and culture. Students in the program have the opportunity to study theories of feminism, gender, and sexuality; the diversity of women's experiences and representations past and present; and women's movements in the United States and around the globe. This curriculum brings students into contact with the extensive research on women, gender, and feminism that has burgeoned during the past thirty years, as well as with historical and cross-cultural knowledge that recognizes the intersections of gender with race, class, religion, sexuality, ethnicity, age, ability, and nationality. Learning Goals Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies draws upon the full range of the human arts and sciences to examine the diversity of gender and sexuality within and across cultures; women's past and present experiences; representations of women and people with varying sexualities in diverse cultures; and concepts, structures, and practices that underwrite gender and sexuality as social categories. Students in our program have the opportunity to study the global and historical range of the lives, works, and circumstances of women, men and gender non-conforming people; to scrutinize different theoretical frameworks that seek to describe, explain, and remedy sexual inequalities and gender inequities; and to encounter current findings and debates within the field. As it engages students with the extensive research on women, gender, and sexuality that has burgeoned during the past thirty years, as well as with creative work focusing on gender and sexuality, our curriculum is particularly committed to addressing the intersections of gender with race, class, nation, religion, age, sexuality, and ethnicity, among other critical vectors of identity.
