About WGSS

The Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Emory University is proud to support a generous and pluralistic understanding of women's studies in its work. The department foregrounds analysis of gender and sexualities in intersection with other important categories including race, ethnicity, religion, class, disability and nationality. We examine genealogies of feminist thought, contemporary theories of gender and sexuality and explore the complex relations between theory and practice.
