Statement of Purpose

  • To build a supportive interdisciplinary community for faculty whose research and/ or teaching concern women, gender and/or sexuality, through faculty seminars, research presentations, & reading and discussion groups.
  • To identify all UH faculty working in this area and gather information about their research and teaching interests. We use this information to refer students and colleagues to appropriate resources, to recruit interested faculty for special events and projects, and to assess the university's strengths and needs in WGSS Studies across the curriculum.
  • To provide official acknowledgement of the contributions faculty make to the program. We believe it is important that faculty members' voluntary efforts on behalf of interdisciplinary programs be recognized as a valuable service to the university.

WGSS offers a number of fellowships and grants, with funds raised by the Friends of Women's Studies. Faculty Affiliates receive first consideration for these. The Affiliates program aims to facilitate collaboration: to connect with scholars doing related research, please review our affiliates' recent work and awards.
