WGS 2100 Intro to Gender & Sexuality Studies
A “short take” linking old-age justice and racial justice that was recently published by WGS Associate Professor Corinne Field and Cultural Critic Margaret Gullette.
Dear graduating students, we, in the Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, are proud of you and your accomplishments. You never lost sight of your scholarly goals, yet at the same time, you continued to be some of the most socially conscious and politically alert students at this university. We salute your commitment to the welfare of the world we live in. We admire your unflinching dedication to the creation of a non-violent world for all. Go on, my friends, be a seeker after knowledge and enlightenment, after compassion and justice.
To the WGS Graduates of 2020–
This is undoubtedly a challenging and stressful time, but I encourage you to remember the words of Wilma Rudolph, three-time Olympic gold medalist in 1960:
“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”
Thank you for sharing your greatness and your spirit with WGS; you have inspired us with your dedication and passion. Hold onto those dreams and make sure you stay in touch in the months and years to come.
