Welcome to the bi-college Program in Gender and Sexuality! We are an interdisciplinary program committed to the study of a range of questions raised by the category of gender. We look closely at the intersection of gender with numerous categories of analysis and identity, including race, sexuality, class, disability, and nationality. As you’ll see when you look at the wide array of cross listed courses, you can study history, anthropology, literature, sociology, and a host of other fields, all of which allow you to engage with the issues of gender and sexuality across time and space.
Our courses give you the opportunity to explore a range of approaches: feminist theory and women's studies; transnational and third-world feminisms; the experiences of women of color; gay, lesbian, queer, transgender and transsexual studies; gender a inflected by race, class, religion and nationality; and gender and science.
All students in the program are required to take the core course, "Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Gender and Sexuality." This year the class will be taught in Spring 2011 (ICPRH 290) at Haverford by Professor Gus Stadler (English, Haverford) and Professor Sharon Ullman, (History, Bryn Mawr).
Students can choose to concentrate or minor in G&S Studies. Some students create an Independent Major in Gender and Sexuality. We can help you plan that if you’d like to consider that option. Feel free to contact Professor Sharon Ullman, Program Director, for any questions about this – or anything else! (email@example.com. X5043. Thomas 252).
We hope to see you soon!
