Our program will challenge you academically, personally, and politically to actively promote social justice and social transformation. Our courses will give you the expertise to deal positively and effectively with issues of gender and sexuality facing individuals and society. The pedagogy of feminist, gender, and sexuality studies, rooted in important and innovative research, rigorously challenges cultural assumptions about multiple forms of gender and sexual difference as constructed by culture and history. We address global and transnational feminist and queer movements, the historical roots of gender-based inequality, hierarchies of knowledge; queer social and political movements, the ethical and theological foundations of gender and human rights, and intersecting oppressive forces of race, sexuality, class, and colonialism.
Dr. Jen Schulz (IDLS) integrates her PhD in literary studies, her MA in psychology, and race, gender, and disability studies in courses such as: Trauma Narratives, The Naked Self, and Well-Being in a Catastrophic Age. Moving between classroom teaching and her clinical work with women living with complex trauma, Jen is also committed to inviting her students into embodied reflection and radical listening practices in all of her classes.
Join the Gender Justice Center, Triangle Club, and W&GS for a lunch hour community conversation regarding urgent issues facing our community.
