2002/2003 Fellows Program
The 2002/2003 Fellows Program at the Warren Center, Gender, Sexuality,
and Cultural Politics, will be co-directed by Vanderbilt University
faculty members Carolyn Dever (English) and John M. Sloop (communication
studies). The seminar will explore interdisciplinary approaches to issues
of gender and sexuality, both in the academy, as well as in public policy
and more general cultural contexts. Now at the twentieth anniversary
of Foucaults History of Sexuality, Vol 1, and the tenth anniversary
of Judith Butlers Gender Trouble, gender and sexuality studies
reside at an indeterminate locus at the nexus of the humanities, sciences,
social sciences, and legal studies. In particular, this seminar will
investigate the evolution of gender and sexuality studies, pursuing
such diverse topics as queer studies, masculinity and transgender issues,
feminist work in linguistics, biology, and overlapping constructions
of race and gender.
