New Majorities II: A Cross-Country Duet on the State of Gender and Sexuality Studies in the Academy
- Author(s): Miranda, Krista
- et al.
New Majorities II had a double task: First, the day-long forum continued an initiative launched at the UCLA Center for the Study of Women, and co-conceived by CSW director Kathleen McHugh and NY U Professor Lisa Duggan, to respond to the uneven budget cuts affecting gender and sexuality departments—as well as other interdisciplinary programs, such as African-American and Latino/a Studies—nationwide. Second, the NY U forum was a celebration of the 11th anniversary of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality (CSGS). (As CSGS Director Ann Pellegrini http://www.csgsnyu. org/about/faculty-and-staff/ mock protested, “why celebrate the even when you can celebrate the odd.”)
