TransGendering Women’s Studies: Gender Studies, Naming, and the Political Project of Women’s Studies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper argues that the current move to transition or rename Women’s Studies to Gender Studies risks losing the central political project of the discipline. The author examines the various arguments for and against renaming Women’s Studies as Gender Studies, including an analysis of the fundamental differences and key commonalities between the two areas of inquiry. While asserting that Gender Studies is a valid and important area of study, this paper argues that conflating Gender Studies with Women’s Studies obscures both the political nature of Women’s Studies and the diversity of Gender Studies.
