Women's and Gender Studies Immersion

This interdisciplinary immersion provides an introduction to women’s and gender studies. Students interrogate the social constructions, political systems, and historical discourses that produce and maintain power structures. Courses examine key feminist, queer, and critical race discourses and study the rise of feminist thought. Students will consider the history of women’s activism and the women’s rights movements from Suffrage to the present day, and explore more recent applications of feminist theory made visible through the rise of intersectional social identity movements.
