Gender Matters – Call For Guest Teachers
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. Inaugurated in Fall 2018 under the guidance of Cinema | Communications’ Dipti Gupta, and now lead by Emma Doubt of Fine Arts.

We are looking forward to putting together another great team!
