Spring 2022

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Faculty Interest Group

Spring 2022 Minutes

March 31, 2022, 1-2PM, Zoom

April 28, 2022, 1-2PM, Zoom
May 12, 2022, 1-2, Zoom

The Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Faculty Interest Group is still using Zoom. We focused on Black, Race, and Ethnic Studies, with a focus on Indigenous Studies. We also discussed transdisciplinary studies more generally.

At the first meeting, we began a critical discussion of Tiffany Lethabo King’s The Black Shoals: Offshore Formations of Black and Native Studies: https://www.dukeupress.edu/Assets/PubMaterials/978-1-4780-0636-7_601.pdf. We talked about the field of indigenous studies and talked about King’s work on decolonial feminisms with a focus on critical indigenous and Black studies.

At second meeting, we continued our discussion of King’s work. We focused on cultural studies, archives, and literary criticism. We talked about doing events on campus focusing on Black indigenous studies and civic engagement.

The third and last meeting of the semester we recapped the semester and talked about what we want next year to look like for the WGSS FIG. We talked much about how to continue intersectional, transdisciplinary, and social justice work in academia and in advocacy. I will be on sabbatical, but Dominic Wetzel will be the interim director of WGSS and the WGSS FIG for AY Fall 2022-Spring 2023 until I return in Fall 2023.
