The Program for The Study of Women,
Gender, and Sexuality


The program's goal is to advance the following aims:

  • To develop an appropriate pedagogy that is interdisciplinary in orientation and to train students who can deploy the conceptual frames of disciplines in a meaningful way, in order to enhance their understanding of women, gender and sexuality;
  • To encourage students to gain practical experience issues pertaining to the lives of women and of sexual minorities in all their diversity by developing and participating in field projects;
  • To create a new body of interdisciplinary research that specifically address issues of gender in relation to class, ethnicity and race in everyday life, in political organization and in situations of violent conflict;
  • To build supportive environments for women and sexual minorities by incorporating and disseminating their contributions through training and research, and to provide opportunities for students in low-income countries to develop expertise in these fields within agendas set in their own intellectual and social environments.
