A study of gender as one of the primary categories through which social relationships are organized reveals the political functioning of relations of power, and the ways in which individuals negotiate those relationships within their specifically contextual locations. Gender Studies recognizes the capacity for knowledge production to be transformative in the functioning of both daily lives and institutional practices.
Our Gender Studies program includes a curriculum built from courses across a range of disciplines. This equips students to analyze systems of power using an intersectional approach through the experiences of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, and religion.
Students have formally representing the college at regional research conferences, and have successfully continued to pursue graduate study. Course work in Gender Studies focuses on events, movements, people, and politics both historical and contemporary; irreverent and sacred; creative and practical; canonical and obscure. In addition, Gender Studies students have been instrumental in establishing and sustaining campus organizations that support the theoretical work they do in the classroom.
