Since the late 20th century, feminist scholarship has explored the important, but sometimes hidden, ways that gender and gender inequality shape and are shaped by our cultural, social and personal worlds. More recent developments in the field recognize that these concerns are intricately connected with other dimensions of social power and identity, such as race, class, gender identity and sexual orientation.Engaging courses taught by expert faculty from multiple disciplines as well as opportunities for internships and research allow our students to address the intersections of gender and other social variables through classroom and real-world settings.
Feminist scholarship, which arose in the late twentieth century in response to the historically masculine bias of the academy, explores the important but often hidden ways that gender and gender inequality have shaped, and been shaped by, our cultural, social, and personal worlds. In recent years, scholars in the field have increasingly recognized that gender and gender inequality cannot be understood in abstraction from other axes of social identity and power, especially those of race, class, sexual orientation, and nation.
Thus, the program in Women's and Gender Studies at Willamette University offers students the opportunity to examine, from both disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives, gender's intersections with other dimensions of social power and identity. In addition to addressing these intersections, courses may focus on developments within feminist thought, on applications of feminist scholarship to a particular field of study, or on selected topics concerning gender and gender inequality.
All Women's and Gender Studies classes encourage students to think systematically and critically about gender and to confront the challenges of moving toward a more equitable world.
