Gender Out of Bounds


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

Faculty Seminars

"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 gender is studied, understood, or used in fields such as Psychology and History; Environmental Sciences and Communication & Media; Anthropology and English. In sharing how different disciplines approach gender as a 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.
