Women's & Gender Studies at Kenyon

The Women's and Gender Studies Program offers interdisciplinary perspectives on the complex role gender plays in shaping the world around us. It enables students to understand how gender impacts their everyday lives as well as its role in society, institutions and practices both locally and globally.

Drawing up transnational and intersectional approaches, students investigate gender through its connections with race, class, cultural identity, sexuality, nationality, and religion. This holistic approach enables us to interrogate essentializing categories of identity and static notions like "traditional vs. modern," "West vs. East," "heterosexual vs. homosexual," which distort significant gendered differences across the globe.
