Gender Matters – Call For Guest Teachers

May 18th, 2021

Gender Matters is a unique course pairing Women’s/Gender Studies students and faculty in a learning community to explore how gender shapes our individual lives, societal institutions and the systems of privilege and exploitation that mark our world.

We are looking forward to putting together another great team!
