Taking the difference between men and women seriously. That men and women are different is an accepted tenet of popular culture—indeed, the success of everything from reality television shows to self-help books relies on the notion that la difference is a fact that yields happy, challenging, and occasionally comic in the course of everyday life. The acknowledgment of difference has also provided fuel for many a political fire. Yet amble any great distance along the path of sex differences, and you will soon find yourself with Harvard President Larry Summers, tripping painfully on the gnarled and dangerous roots buried there. Summers's provocative comments about sex differences at an academic conference prompted Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Nancy Hopkins to walk out of the room in protest. Hopkins, who now moonlights as the Ivy League's self-appointed, publicity-seeking gender warden, several years ago spawned a similar media tempest by claiming, on paltry evidence, that women at MIT were the victims of institution-wide discrimination.
Study the cultural and historical production of sexual difference, the impact of feminist research, and the intersection of gender with other social forces.
Studying GWS offers a rigorous critical inquiry into these multiple forms of difference, challenging conventional assumptions about women, sexuality and gender roles. Our program promotes the development of new ideas and research in feminist scholarship within an open, supportive environment.
The other is a t major that links feminist studies with another discipline or program, including art history; economics; English; French; history; media studies; politics; psychology; religious studies; science, technology and society; or theatre.
