Women, Gender, and Sexuality

From women's rights in liberal societies to the changing roles of women in the family, from the gendered division of labor to the way gender works in politics, attention to women and gender has brought a critical perspective on both the human past and the present. The history of gender and sexuality has also upended norms of gendered conduct that have often been described as natural and unalterable.

Along with the Center for the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, a number of faculty in the History Department also research and teach in related fields:
