Women Studies Department: Research & Teaching Emphases

  • The core faculty members are trained in advanced interdisciplinary methods. We use what we regard to be the best of the methods from traditional disciplines while also interrogating how certain disciplines came to be so powerful in the first place. Our various research projects require us to traverse disciplinary boundaries in order to understand how the politics of knowledge are related to social inequalities...
  • The focus of UCI Women’s Studies Department lies not on different areas of the world but on the key discursive sites in which gendered and sexualized subjects and forms of knowledge are produced....
  • The faculty have worked extensively in Feminist Transnational Studies and are recognized as such in academic and scholarly circles. Much of the work in this area examines the conflicts between different ideas of modernity within nations, and the ways in which European colonialism was the force through which these encounters occurred. We believe that thinking trans-nationally goes against regional divisions (as constructed within traditional Area Studies programs) since it examines the histories of gender that came about as a result of cultural encounters rather than as different and parallel trajectories in different nations."
