Welcome From the Director
Welcome to a new year! It promises to be another busy and productive semester, with robust enrollments in our classes and an ever-growing number of students minoring or majoring in Women’s and Gender Studies and/or pursuing the LGBTQ Studies certificate. I am particularly excited that new Environmental Studies faculty member Dr. Laura Hartman is teaching WG STDS/ES 365, Gender and Nature, to a full house this semester.
We have a full line-up of exciting Brown-Bag talks this semester, starting on February 24th at 12:40 p.m., when WAGS is co-sponsoring a talk by Anna Czarknik-Neimeyer with the Sociology Department and CETL. Anna is Assistant Director of the Cassandra Voss Center at St. Norbert College. Dr. Kathleen Corley will give a talk during Women’s History Month (3/9 at 12:40) based on her book-in-progress, How Women Invented Christianity. And on April 6th at 11:30 a.m., Dr. Liz Cannon and Dr. Amney Harper will present on bi-inclusion in the curriculum. More details will be posted to our Facebook page.
In case you missed it, I’d like to draw your attention to UW Oshkosh Today’s feature story about Women’s and Gender Studies major Ashley Weselenak. The story focuses on Ashley’s internship at the Winnebago County Public Health Department and her participation in the Wisconsin Women’s Policy Institute. Kudos to Ashley for making the most of her experiences here at UW Oshkosh!
We are offering three courses this summer, all on-line. In addition to a section of Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies, Dr. Caryn Murphy is offering her cross-listed course, Race, Class, and Gender in the Mass Media, and a new instructor, Lyndie Nader, will be offering a Special Topics course called Gender and Bodies. Lyndie is completing her Ph.D. at the University of Nebraska, where her dissertation research focuses on doula-assisted pregnancy and labor.
