Center for the Study of Genders and Sexualities


About CSGS

The Centers for the Study of Genders and Sexualities is a university-wide, interdisciplinary center housed in the College of Arts and Letters.  The Mission of the CSGS is to promote cutting-edge research and scholarship in gender and sexuality at the intersections of race, class, religion, ability, and nation. We maintain that empowering and socially relevant knowledge is generated most effectively through close interdisciplinary collaboration among scholars, students, and community members, both on and off campus.
