GWS Spotlight on Bonnie Washick, Postdoctoral Associate
"I am excited to be teaching a graduate course titled "Theories of Citizenship" in Gender & Women's Studies at UIUC this fall."
Graduate Student Spotlight on Francena Turner
"I am minoring in Gender and Women Studies because I saw, early on, the ways Black feminist and queer theories could inform my academic and community organizing work."
Alumna Spotlight on Deirdre Dlugonski
"My background in GWS has changed the way I consume and view popular media, shaped the topics that I choose to study in my research, made me think critically about the daily messages I send to my young son, and perhaps most importantly, helped me to be more comfortable calling myself a feminist."
