Join the Chemical Entanglements Faculty and Graduate Student Working Group

We invite Faculty and Graduate Students from UCLA and other local institutions to participate in the Chemical Entanglements Working Group. Working group members come from across UCLA and beyond; they represent disciplines including Anthropology, English, Environmental Health Sciences, Gender Studies, Information Studies, Law, Public Health, Sociology, and others. The diverse makeup of the working group enables us to work across disciplines on issues related to gender and exposure.

The Working Group meets on a quarterly basis to discuss and implement projects and initiatives related to the ongoing goals of Chemical Entanglements. Recent meetings have included discussions of pedagogy and student engagement, symposium and event planning, and ways of implementing safe chemical policies at UCLA.

We welcome new members. If you would like to join the Chemical Entanglements Working Group, please email csw@csw.ucla.edu for more information.

Working Group Resources and Bibliography

Among the goals of the working group is to gather, create, and disseminate teaching and research resources on issues related to gender and exposure. To that end, the group has begun compiling a a bibliography of key texts and resources related to this project. This is a living document, and we welcome suggestions and feedback.
