Overview

Gender and Sexuality Studies program offered by Vanderbilt University teaches students to reexamine traditional beliefs, to engage in new kinds of research, and to bring a critical perspective to the everyday practices that shape women's and men's lives in the United States and globally. It recognizes as well that race, class, ethnicity, age, sexuality, ability, and nationality are crucial aspects of identity and experience; these are understood to be intersecting and contested features of social life and are examined as such.

Key facts:

  • Because gender is a central feature of human experience and because the topic cuts across most disciplines, students in Women’s and Gender Studies can achieve a deeper understanding of the complexity and wholeness of human experience by using various methodologies. 
  • In the classroom, as in faculty and student research, our goal is to transform traditional ways of knowing by reaching across epistemological and methodological divisions to foster comprehensive, interdisciplinary perspectives on social life. Women’s and Gender Studies not only compels us to recognize the problems and possibilities of the changing times in which we live, but also empowers us to change the world.
