The PhD program in Women and Gender Studies has four emphases: gender, sexuality, and queer studies; feminist cultural studies; feminist studies of technology, science, environment, and biomedicine; and transnational political economy and development studies. The offerings bring feminist scholarship to the tasks of challenging and investigating colonial, postcolonial, and transnational contexts. Central themes of the program include global capitalism, nation and state formation, empire, citizenship, diaspora, and cultural flows, all of which are examined through the lenses of diverse feminist scholarship. The program welcomes applications from international students.
