Women's Studies Faculty

Women's Studies is the interdisciplinary study of the world of women and the workings of gender as it intersects with race, class, colonialism, nationalism, and other vectors of power, throughout history and around the globe. We practice and promote cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural feminist scholarship and teaching with a strong emphasis on the Pacific and Asia. Our program currently has seven faculty members with degrees from 12 disciplines that combine exceptional records of research and publication with outstanding teaching and dynamic, productive service and involvement in local, national, and global communities.
