Introduction

Feminist & Gender Studies is a multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary discipline field that arose in the 1960s and 1970s due to the efforts of those committed to the student, civil rights, and women’s movements. Our intellectual pursuits focus on studying and developing theories that interrogate the impetuses for and implications of power and dominance, especially that which results in oppression based on the inextricably linked lines of sexuality, race, gender, class, and other social, cultural, and political markers. We also study and develop critical practices designed to eradicate oppression, as well as to understand how various communities understand and resist, reject, and reproduce it. 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.
