About the Department
Since its inception in 1975 as the center of feminist scholarship and teaching at UC Irvine, the Department of Gender & Sexuality Studies has been dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of gender and sexuality in their complex articulations with systems that differentiate races, ethnicities, socio-economic classes, religions, and nationalities. The Department draws critical attention to “gender” and “sexuality” as concept-terms that necessarily invoke multiple systems of oppression, inequality and privilege, and which engender various forms of embodiment, desire, subjectivity, knowledge and politics. We look at masculinities and femininities not as . . .
