A New Name for the Women’s Studies Center at West Virginia University

The Center for Women’s Studies at West Virginia University has a new name. The new name is The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies.

“Our new name reflects the mission of this program to identify and support women and social diversity in our communities and society as a whole,” said Ann Oberhauser, director of the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies. “This change stems from advances in women’s and gender studies scholarship and activism that recognize the important role of gender, sexuality and feminism.”

The change in the center’s name is just one of a number of changes happening in the field of feminist scholarship at West Virginia University. More students are drawn to the diverse array of offerings within the center, including courses in feminist theory and women’s studies, as well as on men and masculinities. There is also a new minor in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer studies.
