GWSS Name Change

Monica De La Torre, Martha Gonzalez, Kate Mottola, Nicole Robert, Noralis Rodríguez-Coss, and Shuxuan Zhou.  GWSS Name Change.  Short film.  Music by Quetzal.  October 2012.

In 2011, the Women Studies Department changed its name to Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies Department. Students at the graduate level will now receive their degrees and certificates in Feminist Studies. These changes reflect current debates in the field that involve feminisms in different historical and geographic contexts; push research and teaching in new directions; and speak to complex, powerful relationships among social categories.

Graduate students decided to produce a short film that explains why this change in name is significant and what it means to the study of women, gender, and sexuality.
