Women's and Gender/LBGTQ Studies

The Women’s and Gender/LGBTQ Studies collection supports teaching, learning, and research through the PhD level (including the graduate portfolio and the MA in Women’s and Gender and LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies) in interdisciplinary research in Women’s and Gender and LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies. The collection focuses on the main areas of study of the affiliated and core faculty of the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies: Critical Race Studies, Feminist and Queer Theory, Human Rights and Gender and Racial Justice, LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies, and feminist studies in fields including African and African Diaspora Studies, Anthropology, Asian and Asian American Studies, English Literature, Mexican American and Latin@ Studies, Native American and Indigenous Studies, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Theatre and Dance, and others.

English is the primary language of the collection, with a focus on studies of and from the United States, Africa and the African Diaspora, the Caribbean, East Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and South Asia. Coverage of the interdisciplinary range of Women’s and Gender/LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies scholarship involves several subject specialist librarians working together to provide appropriate coverage for their constituencies. The Women’s and Gender/LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies subject specialist regularly collaborates with subject specialist librarians in African and African Diaspora Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Film, History, Latin@ Studies, Middle East Studies, Native American and Indigenous Studies, Social Work, Sociology, and Theatre.
