    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 Foucault’s History of Sexuality, Vol 1, and the tenth anniversary of Judith Butler’s 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.

    The Warren Center will sponsor a Visiting Fellow with expertise in the area of study, in addition to selected Vanderbilt University faculty members. Information regarding the internal and external applications processes can be obtained from the Warren Center.
