Scholarly Community

women at table in discussionFaculty who are doing research on women, gender, and sexuality can find a strong support system and network at IRWG.

Funds, resources such as space and technology, and administrative support are available for faculty-initiated residencies, projects, groups, and collaborations.

 

IRWG Faculty Affiliates

There are over 150 IRWG faculty affiliates from more than 51 different departments which make up a core group we look to for creating collaborations, meeting like-minded scholars, and participating in planning sessions and brainstorming to build ambitious research projects. Gender may be the primary focus of their work, or it may be just one part among many.

Faculty affiliates also take part in Expert Advisory Panels, who convene for lunchtime conversations and reviews of each other's grant proposals and other similar written work. Co-facilitated by director Anna Kirkland, and director of research development, Dr. Jocelyn Stitt, these regular meetings include IRWG affiliates, postdoctoral fellows, and other gender scholars from the 3 campuses, with lunch provided in Lane Hall. Attendees will receive a copy of the work to be reviewed in advance. The goal of these panels is to augment our faculty networks and to spur interesting, new relationships and ideas.
