Sexuality, Women's and Gender Studies

Department of Sexuality, Women's & Gender Studies


Sexuality, Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural exploration of sexuality, gender, and their relationship. How are these categories constructed, understood, and reproduced in contemporary and past societies?  SWAGS is also an inquiry specifically into women’s material, cultural, and economic productions, their self-descriptions and collective undertakings. We invite you to join us.
