The Women and Gender Studies Associate faculty work in conjunction with the core faculty to promote a strong and interdisciplinary community of scholars. They meet regularly to discuss departmental issues, serve on committees, and participate in events. Their research interests touch on a wide range of issues pertaining to the study of women, gender, and sexuality studies. We are honored to include them in our WGST family!
