Welcome Back!

Welcome back to Women and Gender Studies for Fall 2014! The department staff and faculty are excited to begin our work with you this semester. Whether you are a current WGS major or minor, a graduate student in WGS, alumni, or a friend of the department on or off campus, we hope to see you this fall, and to work together on feminist projects.

New Faculty

As you return to campus, you will see some new faces around the department. This fall we welcome Assistant Professor Martha Kenney to San Francisco. We are also happy to have new lecturers joining us as well: Julie Cosenza, Aiden Gleisberg, and Kristen Loutensock.


Current students should be sure to meet with their advisor in the first few weeks of the semester to discuss your courses and degree program. Office hours are posted in HUM 315, and on the department website. For Fall 2014 advising, please see the following faculty.

Events and Activities

WGS is offering a range of exciting courses this fall, and we are planning additional events and activities.
Current students may want to get involved with on-campus groups, including Feminism in Action. (FIA). FIA holds biweekly meetings and can be reached via email fiasfsu@gmail.com or on Facebook.
We particularly want to call your attention to the WGS Fall Lecture Series, back after a few years’ hiatus. Almost every Thursday at 12:35 pm, WGS will host a public lecture on a topic of interest to feminist students, scholars, and community members. These lectures are open to the public and we urge you to join us!

Stay Connected

To stay up to date with department events, including the lecture series, please stop by HUM 316 (Monday – Thursday, 9:00 – 5:00) or click onto the department Facebook page. Friends of the department can also email us and ask to be added to our email list for event announcements.
We look forward to learning and working with you this semester!
