    New Members of WGSS for 2014-2015
    • We are pleased to announce that the WGSS program is expanding in 2014! We will be joined by Moya Bailey, the first ever Dean's Postdoctoral Fellow and Visiting Scholar in WGSS and Digital Humanities this July. Professor Bailey comes to us from a postdoctoral fellowship at Pennsylvania State College after having received her Ph.D. From Emory University. Professor Bailey will teach Introduction to Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in Fall 2014. Her fellowship will involve both teaching and research and she will share time with the WGSS program and the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. This is a two-year appointment and we are excited about this new relationship with both NULab and Professor Bailey.

    • We are also thrilled to announce that we have selected three outstanding visiting scholars to join us for the 2014-2015 academic year. Banu Subramaniam, and evolutionary plant biologist by training, joins us on sabbatical from University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she is Associate Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Juli Grigsby is a Ph.D. Candidate in Cultural Anthropology from University of Texas at Austin and Beenash Jafri is a Ph.D. Candidate in Gender, Feminist, and Women's Studies at York University. You can find more information about these scholars' anticipated projects here.

    • We look forward to how the work of these new additions to the program will overlap and intersect with the ongoing work of our faculty and students, adding rich texture and diversity of studies to our program.
