Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Junior Year Tutorial: Research and Methods




In Junior Tutorial, students develop key research and writing skills necessary to write a junior research paper. We will read a range of texts that engage diverse methods in the fields of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. Together, we will learn about methods and questions that form feminist engagements with archival research, literary and cultural studies, ethnography, quantitative and survey-based social science, and the sciences. Students will learn and engage with key methods across the humanities and social sciences through readings and engage practice in the classroom. Students will meet in small groups with their designated tutor who will guide them through research and writing on the particular topic of their interest. Over the course the semester, students will develop a research project in a focused area based in a clear and concise research question. Students will develop research projects, produce an annotated bibliography with primary and secondary sources, and will produce a final polished research paper by the end of the semester. This course is required of all Honors concentrators in WGS in their junior year.
