Bowdoin College - Boody-Johnson House

The interdisciplinary Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program curriculum incorporates recent research on women, sexuality, and gender. GSWS combines the scholarly traditions of each field in new and productive ways to develop a culture of critical thinking about sexuality, gender, race, and class. Courses in GSWS investigate the experience of women and men in light of the social construction of gender and its meaning across cultures and historic periods. Gender construction is explored as an institutionalized means of structuring inequality and dominance. The program offers a wide range of courses taught by faculty members from many departments and programs.
