Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies | Faculty Interest Group at Kingsborough
Established in 1994 at Kingsborough Community College (CUNY), the Women’s and Gender Studies Program remains an important and innovative site of academic inquiry. This faculty interest group (FIG) is open to all faculty—whether or not they teach in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program—and is devoted to continuing scholarly and pedagogical discussions within the field of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. We will analyze structures of power and dimensions of difference by focusing on gender, race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, ability, and age, both in and out the classroom.
In particular, we plan to engage in intellectual debates within the field, share course materials and activities to support our teaching, and nurture each other as we push boundaries in the classroom and in our scholarship. We encourage faculty from a range of disciplines to get involved and to help build an interdisciplinary community committed to social change.
Through a series of events, based on collaborative readings, writings, and discussions, we will center women’s and other gendered experiences, as well as intersecting identities, in order to raise social, political, and cultural consciousness on campus.
This FIG is facilitated by Red Washburn (English and Women’s and Gender Studies). For more information, please contact Red Washburn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
