Welcome Back ETSU Students!

I want to extend a warm welcome back to our ETSU students! With a new school year comes many more updated blog posts from our student workers, faculty, and staff in the Women’s Studies office here at ETSU.  So be sure to check the blog regularly for these posts.

Also, in honor of the upcoming school year, I want to encourage anyone interested in the Women’s Studies program here at ETSU to stop by our office at the Campus Center Building Room 211.  The office staff will be happy to enlighten you on the mission of the Women’s Studies program, how to become a Women’s Studies major or minor, and share with you some of our exciting projects such as ETSU’s Women’s Firsts, which was highlighted in an article featured in the Johnson City Press.

Lastly, stay updated on upcoming events through this blog.  We have some great events happening on and off campus this year including I Heart Female Orgasm and Notable Women.

About etsuwomenstudies

This blog is a collaborative effort from the students, faculty, and feminist souls in the East Tennessee State University Women's Studies Department. We simply want to share daily thoughts with the world and encourage not only feminist thought, but awareness, tolerance, diversity, equality, justice, and social progress. Women's Studies is an exciting, interdisciplinary area of study that celebrates women's lives. It examines how diverse women have contributed to history, social processes, culture, politics and economics, as well as how all of these have shaped women's experiences. Our program provides new ways of looking at common assumptions about femininity and masculinity and teaches students how to connect what they study with how they live and work. We also explore how gender intersects with ability, age, class, culture, ethnicity, nationality, race, religion, and sexuality. Our Leadership through Diversity focus promotes a creative struggle for justice and equality. We train graduates to be leaders in both civic engagement and the workforce. The Women's Studies Program at ETSU is comprised of dedicated faculty and staff and socially conscious students coming together from a wide range of disciplines.
