Introduction

Feminist & Gender Studies is a multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary discipline that arose in the 1960s and 1970s due to the efforts of those committed to the student, civil rights, and women’s movements. Hence, our intellectual pursuits focus on theories that interrogate the impetuses for and implications of power and dominance, especially that which is dependent on normative assumptions about sexuality, race, class, and other social, cultural, and political markers. We also study critical practices designed to eradicate oppression, including the ways communities understand and resist, reject, and reproduce said assumptions. Along these lines, we undertake intellectual work developed in academic disciplines including, but not limited to, sociology, psychology, history, literature, political science, anthropology, and economics, but we also remain committed to intellectual collaboration outside of the academy.
