Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Feminist-header

The Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department examines the categories women, gender, and sexuality as they intersect with race, class, ethnicities, belief systems, and nationalities. We offer an interdisciplinary framework through which to explore the social construction of gender and sexuality and the material impact of these constructions. We offer historical, contemporary, and transnational analyses of how the formation of gender and sexualities emerge in different contexts such as colonialisms, nationalisms, and globalization. From our engagement with, and critique of, disciplinary practices in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences, we forge new critical paradigms and methods for generating feminist knowledges. Our creation of new critical paradigms relies on the linking of knowledge formation to activism and social justice movements. Our courses satisfy campus breadth requirements, develop critical analysis and writing skills, and transform students’ understanding of and engagement with the world around them.

A student who majors in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies will gain a strong liberal arts training in critical theory and social justice. They can apply these skills to a range of professions. Graduates may pursue advanced degrees in the arts, humanities, social sciences, law, or medicine; or pursue work in the private sector, social services, advocacy programs, or the NPO sector. The Department of Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (FGS) at Scripps participates in the Intercollegiate Feminist Center for Teaching, Research and Engagement at The Claremont Colleges.
