Our academic approach reflects the way feminists work—across subjects—exploring how gender, race, class, and sexuality are represented in relation to ethnicity, nationality, politics, and other categories of human experience.

Faculty

Interdisciplinary by design, the Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies Programs draws its chair, faculty, and affiliate faculty from throughout the college and conservatory who are committed to teaching transnational and cross-cultural perspectives on gender, sexuality, and feminism. They bring a broad range of expertise based on their scholarship, research, and collaborative approach to this field of study.
