Well, I made it through the first frantic week of classes — frantic mainly because I’m trying to get a jump start on programs for Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies. I’ve set up a Facebook group for WGSS — so far, 41 people have signed up. At least I’ll get to learn my students’ names sooner than usual!
As to programs, we already have Mary Jo Kane from the Tucker Center at University of Minnesota booked to give a talk in November. Then in the spring we have Guerrilla Girls on Tour performing “Feminists are Funny”. Hopefully this will all generate some positive energy for the program.
