RSS Gender Workshop

The gender and sexuality workshop provides a setting for students and faculty interested in any aspect of gender or sexuality to come together to share their ongoing research and receive feedback from others.   Participants’ interests in gender and sexuality are broad and wide-ranging.  As a group we investigate issues of gender and sexuality across many levels of social life and as they intersect with other social identities and sociological phenomena. Methodologically, many participants use ethnography and in-depth interviewing, but we welcome and encourage methodological diversity within our group.   Projects recently presented in the workshop have been on the professionalization of the secretarial role, low income women’s experiences of infertility, the medicalization of doulas and lactation consultants,  the role of public health workers in enforcing HIV disclosure law,  Catholic women’s experiences of infertility, the sexual socialization of preschoolers, and  sexual pleasure in college women’s hookups.

On a bi-weekly basis the workshop aims to assist students with many aspects of doing research including, writing and revising papers for publication in peer-reviewed journals, developing dissertation proposals, and preparing job talks. The format for each session varies depending on the stage of student development and type of project.  

Faculty participating in the Gender Workshop include:

Elizabeth A. Armstrong (faculty co-organizer), Karin Martin (faculty co-organizer)

Graduate Students participating in the Gender Workshop include:

Elizabeth Armstrong, Denise Bailey, John Bailey, Jamie Budnick, Danielle Czarnecki, Ann Bell, Keon Dillon, Sarah Gram, Ruti Levtov, Jennifer Torres, Trevor Hoppe, Rachel Pierotti, Lotus Seely, Jamie Small.

 

In 2013-14, the Gender Workshop will be offered in both the Fall and Winter semesters.
