Women’s Studies Is...
An academic program generating, supporting, and sharing research on women, gender, and sexuality.
Welcome to Women’s Studies at Appalachian State University, founded in 1976 by a group of passionate female faculty members, the oldest Women’s Studies Program in the Univ. of North Carolina system and the second oldest in the state (after Bennett College). We continue to do what we’ve always done: “generating, supporting, and sharing research on women, gender, and sexuality” through our degrees and courses (B.A. in Women’s Studies, minors in Women’s Studies, LGBT Studies, and Girls’ Studies, and the Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies, our programs, especially for Women’s History Month (March), and our participation in regional and national Women’s Studies conferences. Right now, we’re preparing our presentations by students and faculty for the Southeastern Women’s Studies Association meetings at UNC-Wilmington for Mar. 27-29. Take a look at the exciting offerings for Women’s History Month, with a keynoter theme of Women, Science, and Social Change. Our strength is in our Affiliated Women’s Studies Faculty: 67 strong, from nineteen departments and five colleges, who teach and research gender-related topics. Many of our faculty have received teaching or research awards, both in the state and internationally. Come by and see us in the Living Learning Academic Center, and look at our Facebook page.
I look forward to meeting and talking with you sometime this semester,
Interim Director, Women’s Studies
Professor Emerita, Women’s Studies
The Monologues are a series of stories from women all over the world - some funny, some sexy, some heartfelt, all beautiful! The show revolves around the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various names for the vagina, and the vagina as a symbol of identity for women.
The show runs three nights - February 12, 13, and 14, with the show starting at 7:00 each night. Tickets will be sold in the student union starting Monday, February 10. $7 before, $10 at the door. CASH, DEBIT, OR CREDIT. We will also be hosting a contact table in the student union the week of the show where you can buy buttons, t-shirts, chocolate vaginas, and vagina valentines!
