CWGS Faculty Development Program
The Center for Women's and Gender Studies is pleased to present our 2013 Faculty Development Program. This program, with support from the Provost's Office and Graduate Schoool, is designed to assist in recruitment, retention and promotion of new faculty members by providing them with support of various kinds. Our goal is to welcome, inform and support our new colleagues. The 5 faculty fellows included this year are outstanding young scholars who work in gender studies. We are very pleased to have them as members of the university community.
All of the fellows will give presentations in the New Faculty Colloquium which is held on various Monday afternoons at 3:30 PM throughout the academic year. We encourage interested faculty and students from the university community to attend these talks to learn more about new research being done in the fields of women's and gender studies.
This program is part of a broader effort by CWGS to facilitate interdisciplinary research on campus. Interdisciplinary research work promises new opportunities for innovation and insight as a result of bringing together scholars trained as a result of bringing together scholars trained in different methodologies and disciplinary traditions around a common theme. When interdisciplinary groups of scholars form broader intellectual communities, it also increases the likelihood that these scholars wll go on to have successful research and become long standing members of our faculty.
