Gender Out of Bounds

Cross-Disciplinary Conversations About the Unexpected, Surprising Ways That Gender Matters in Our Diverse Fields

"Gender out of Bounds” features informal faculty seminars, formal campus presentations, and special guest lectures by visiting speakers. The series highlights the unexpected, even surprising ways in which we approach questions of gender and sexuality from diverse fields of study. In sharing how different disciplines approach gender as a core category of analysis, we make visible how gender matters: in our pedagogy, in our research, in our public discourse. At the same time, the "Gender out of Bounds" series emphasizes the centrality of interdisciplinary thinking to the field of Women's and Gender Studies, a field which forges connections across the humanities, sciences, and social sciences.
