Why WGSS at Macalester?

In the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department (WGSS) at Macalester College, students investigate key questions raised within feminist and queer theories and the fields of women’s, transgender, bisexual, lesbian, and gay studies. We examine our core topics in contexts of interlocking systems of cultural and political difference based on race, nation, class, ethnicity, and ability, including comparative national and transnational perspectives.
