For forty years, Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies has been home to some of the most theoretically innovative, interdisciplinary, cutting-edge work in the academy, and it has touched and transformed virtually every other field. It has a leavening effect across the humanities and social sciences (and often the sciences as well), providing one of the key entry points for new theoretical, interdisciplinary, and provocative work, as well as collaborations across the disciplines.

Our award-winning faculty are doing edgy, provocative, exciting work across many fields. Click to see a list of journals you’ll find WGSS featured in—from Signs to Science Fiction Studies.
