Free MOOC course: "Gender and Sexuality: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace"

Pitt has just launched a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) through Coursera.  The course Gender and Sexuality: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace, will introduce learners to the field of gender, sexuality, and women's studies, and to LGBTQIA identities.

Fall 2017

GSWS is now closed for the summer, but do plan to come back for more in September. We have the trinity of gender studies scholars coming to visit in fall term: Kathryn Stockton, Gayle Rubin, Jack Halberstam. A year of events on the topic of "Gender and Childhood" (colloquium in April, grad seminar & undergrad course in fall term). And more. We're not stopping now.

Congratulations to Todd Reeser

Congratulations to GSWS Director Todd Reeser, whose book in sexuality studies Setting Plato Straight: Translating Ancient Sexuality in the Renaissance, won the 2017 Gordan book prize from the Renaissance Society of America. The selection committee offered this statement:

Undergraduate Symposium on Masculinities

We are currently seeking proposals for the Undergraduate Symposium on Masculinities!

Are you writing a seminar paper that discusses masculinities? 

Are you working on a project related to masculinities that you would like to share with a wider audience? 

Do you have a paper or project from a previous class that you would like to share?
