WGSS Faculty & Directories

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Ohio University is a community of scholars exploring gender as it informs both traditional approaches to disciplinary knowledge and everyday life in a range of historical and cultural contexts.

It is a central tenet of the program's pedagogy that such exploration can provide us with the tools, analytical and political, to be both curious and critical. The program promotes interdisciplinary teaching and research and provides a locus of feminist scholarship and activism on the campus, in the community, and beyond.

How to Become an Affiliated Faculty Member

The program welcomes new faculty. Faculty who teach gender- and/or sexuality-related courses or pursue gender/sexuality-related research, should contact Dr. Kim Little.
