Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
Room: F115/ Phone: 718-368-5273
Since the fall of 1994, the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Concentration at
Kingsborough Community College has remained an important and innovative site of academic
inquiry. This concentration is open to all students. Students must take "Introduction
to Women's and Gender Studies" and nine more elective credits from three of four groups,
most of which count towards Pathways and your Liberal Arts Concentration. In this
concentration, students will analyze structures of power and dimensions of difference
by focusing on gender and the ways in which it intersects with other social identities,
such as race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, ability, age, religion, among
others. They will learn about concepts of sex/gender systems, histories of social
movements, interdisciplinary modes of inquiry, political debates, and cultural productions.
They will engage in feminist knowledge projects in both disciplinary locations like
English and history and interdisciplinary locations like LGBTQ Studies and Ethnic
Studies. Students will challenge dominant narratives of power relations and social
inequalities, explore different angles of vision, reposition marginalized groups across
location, and link critical examination and practical intervention in their lives
and in the world through civic engagement.
