Celebrate the New Academic Year
UCLA Center for the Study of Women and the Department of Gender Studies
Welcome to academic year 2020-2021! More than six months into a global pandemic, it is clear that the new academic year will be different from what we are used to and one we are not likely to forget. To start with, the joint annual Fall Reception hosted by the Center for the Study of Women (CSW) and the Department of Gender Studies and cannot take place on campus as it has in the past. In its stead, we’d like to share welcome messages from CSW’s Director Dr. Grace Kyungwon Hong and the Department of Gender Studies Interim Chair, Dr. Kathryn Norberg.

Find out more about what’s happening at the Department of Gender Studies and at the Center for the Study of Women (don’t miss our 2020 Awards Celebration on October 16th featuring a keynote address by Alicia Garza!).
We look forward to seeing you in class, at office meetings, and at our events!
