B.A. Program in Multicultural Women's & Gender Studies
I am in the process of developing a bachelor's degree program in Multicultural Women's and Gender Studies (MWGS) Program at Texas Woman's University. The proposed program has three tracks: general study, health, and community leadership. The proposal was recently approved by the Undergraduate Council, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Provost at TWU. If approved by the Board of Regents, it will become the first degree program that offers these three options of study.
This has been an exciting process. I am enjoying building a curriculum that meets the varied needs, goals, and aspirations of students who are interested in earning a degree in the field and working both inside and outside of academia.
I co-developed and am co-teaching a course entitled "Covid-19 & Black Workers: Race, Gender, and Labor" with Dr. Sheri Davis-Faulkner (Director of Women in Labor Leadership, Rutgers University's Center for Innovation and Worker Organization). It is cross-listed between TWU and Spelman College and co-sponsored by the Comparative Women's Studies and Social Justice Fellows Programs and Sociology Department at Spelman College.
I have also developed new undergraduate courses at TWU that are forthcoming:
1-Feminist Archival Research Methods
2-MWGS Senior Capstone
