Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Oregon State University

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Oregon State University relies on multi-disciplinary approaches to the study of gender and sexuality, particularly as they intersect with race, ethnicity, class, culture, religion, nation, and ability.

Our program emphasizes academic excellence, the use of feminist and anti-racist pedagogies, and scholarship that contributes to social change and justice. We are committed to challenging all forms of oppression, and we center queer, transnational, and women of color feminisms in our curriculum. We encourage creative, innovative, and collaborative frameworks of study, and we work to meet the needs of a wide range of students, developing curriculum that is meaningful for students who wish to pursue careers in academia, as well as those who may be interested in community organizing, feminist nonprofit work, and/or other professional areas.

Feminist Formations, a leading journal for innovative work in Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies is published by the Johns Hopkins University Press.  The journal brings together cutting-edge academic and poetic voices. Issues are published three times a year in spring, fall, and winter.

Feminist Formations seeks robust feminist scholarship, visual art, and poetry that can inspire incisive and politically meaningful analyses and action. Currently based in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Oregon State University, the editorial team is dedicated to creating an interdisciplinary space of critical inquiry, compassionate response, and feminist praxis.
