Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies: Home

Serves both the department of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies and the Graduate Certificate in Sexuality & Queer Studies


Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies (GWSS) draws upon feminist thought to push the analytic edge of scholarship foregrounding gender, race and sexuality as integral components of local and global social structures, particularly within the contexts of capitalism, globalization, nationalism and neoliberalism.* 

Sexuality & Queer Studies includes but is not limited to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender themes.  This guide provides links to the most useful databases and resources for researching topics in these broad domains. Use the tabs to navigate through the pages of this guide.
