Program Alumni

Alumni Affiliates of the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality

When we were developing the exhibition "On Equal Terms": Education Women at the University of Chicago, we thought we should create a space to list graduate affiliates. This provides a historical record of our grads, helps everyone stay in contact with each other and us, and provides a resource for our current students who wonder what ever happened to the students who came before them. To start, this will be a list of names, but as it develops it can also become an updated contact list with addresses and current positions. This could also become a source of mentors and contacts for our majors as they explore their future career options.

All alumni of the University of Chicago interested in Gender and Sexuality Studies are welcome to participate in any of our events throughout the year.
