Gender & Women’s Studies

Designed by graduate certificate alum and local artist Leslie Nichols, here’s our program’s logo (t-shirt design).

The Women’s Studies Program became official in 1990, with the approval of the undergraduate minor. In 2010-11 we celebrated our 20-year anniversary. We offer an undergraduate minor and a graduate certificate, offer a vigorous speakers/performers line-up, and have several outreach projects.

Our full-time faculty are Dr. Molly Kerby and Dr. Kristi Branham. I teach as well. Courses I teach regularly are:

Black Feminisms & the Politics of Community
Place & the Problem of Healing
Utopias, Dystopias, and Intentional Communities
