Women's Studies Project on Teaching, Curriculum and Scholarship

Project Description

Each year a small group of faculty members are invited to participate in the Project from a list of those self-nominated or recommended by prior participants or department chairs. Participating faculty meet throughout the academic year with the designated Project Coordinator(s) to explore new approaches in the design/redesign of a course of their choice that they will teach in a subsequent semester. Together they engage in activities that include the discovery of content about women in the various disciplines, the acquisition of scholarly work by women that is appropriate for inclusion in the course, and the introduction of and dialogue about pedagogical practices that serve to create a more inclusive classroom with the full participation and inquiry by all students. Participants are also supported in exploring new research questions and methodologies, and identifying new avenues for funding, publication and recurrent professional involvement related to their areas of interest. Participants are awarded a stipend to purchase materials that support their work.
