Free MOOC course: "Gender and Sexuality: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace"

Pitt has just launched a new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) through Coursera.  The course Gender and Sexuality: Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace, will introduce learners to the field of gender, sexuality, and women's studies, and to LGBTQIA identities.

Fall 2017

GSWS is now closed for the summer, but do plan to come back for more in September. We have the trinity of gender studies scholars coming to visit in fall term: Kathryn Stockton, Gayle Rubin, Jack Halberstam. A year of events on the topic of "Gender and Childhood" (colloquium in April, grad seminar & undergrad course in fall term). And more. We're not stopping now.
