Gender Studies

Gender Studies in the Department of English at the University of Oklahoma brings together the varied research interests of the faculty from almost all the disciplines of our department. Recently we have offered courses on American Women Writers; Native Women Writers; Blackness, Coloniality & Gender; Contemporary Feminist Theory; Chivalric Masculinity; Transatlantic Women Writers; and Sixteenth-Century Women Writers. Approaches to gender studies in the department are varied in terms of theory, methodology and object of study, with courses focused on different national literatures, film, and rhetoric.

Graduate students in the concentration work closely with faculty to tailor their research and writing projects to their own particular interests in gender studies. Interdisciplinary work is encouraged both within the English Department and with other departments.
Students present their work at regional and national conferences, and seek publication in major journals. The English Department and the Graduate College provide competitive funding sources for conference travel and dissertation research.
