This WGS Graduate Proseminar will emphasize in-depth, lively conversations with WGS faculty about the interdisciplinary innovations of WGS Studies today, with singular attention to current debates in feminist and queer theories and practices. Each week, one member of the WGS faculty will guide the seminar in wide-ranging conversation about their own intellectual formation, about their own field of expertise, and about where and how their own writing fits into the larger intellectual itinerary of WGS Studies. Discussions focused on the intellectual history of WGS Studies as well as on matters of writing, teaching, and professional development will frame the course. Visiting faculty members may include Robin Bernstein, Michael Bronski, Caroline Light, Durba Mitra, Sarah Richardson, and Linda Schlossberg.
