Women and Gender Studies

Associate Faculty

Faculty across the campus support the work of the Women and Gender Studies Program by teaching the courses that contribute to the WGS curriculum, serving on committees for the program and its projects, and doing research on feminist and gender issues in their disciplines. These faculty are drawn from departments and programs in the College of Interdisciplinary Studies, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Community and Public Service, and the Seidman College of Business.

I’ve been associated with the WGS program since I began teaching at GVSU in 1999. WGS students often enroll in the Feminist Philosophy class that I taught for many years, and which is counted towards students’ degrees in the WGS program. Additionally, I am a member of Tri Iota and have long-standing friendships and professional relationships with my colleagues associated with the program.

I work on women and gender in early modern Spain.  My book, Guardianship, Gender, and the Nobility in Early Modern Spain, came out with Ashgate Press in January 2010.  The book focuses on the role of aristocratic women in early modern Spain who were guardians of their children and thus the heads of large noble estates from 1350 to 1750.  I'm currently working on a project on the mothers of illegitimate children in early modern Spain.  I also teach various history courses on women and gender in early modern Europe, and I am the faculty advisor for the student group Voices for Healthy Choices.

I regularly teach a course on the History of Gender, Family and Sexuality; my research is focused on gender and women's history in late 19th century Britain; my current project is about  how a pioneering generation of professional women defined themselves, their professional and private lives, around and against prevailing notions of  proper middle class womanhood.

I teach CLA 320: Women in the Classical World, and most of my translations of ancient Greek poetry and drama are relevant to Women and Gender Studies. My two most recent books are Sophocles' Antigone (2011) and Homeric Hymns (2004), which includes the myths of Demeter and of Aphrodite. This year, I'm on sabbatical leave translating Euripides' Medea and Sappho's poetry for Cambridge UP.

I teach ENG/WGS 461: Language and Gender. My related research focuses on language ideologies and identity, particularly students' uses of language to create, challenge, and change ideologies of gender and sexuality.
