In the Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies capstone we will reflect back on your intellectual and political journeys as GWSS majors and look forward towards what lies ahead. You will review some of the major concepts, skills and modes of analyzing the world you have encountered and engaged in GWSS and use them to conduct your capstone research projects. We will also consider how your journeys through GWSS will shape where you will go next, particularly in terms of the kinds of feminist thought and action you hope to engage in post-graduation.
