Collection Description

The UC Berkeley Library maintains a research-level collection in Gender and Women's Studies which supports the research and teaching programs not only of the Department of Gender and Women's Studies (GWS) but of many other disciplines, interdisciplinary programs and professional schools. Gender and Women's Studies at Berkeley "offers interdisciplinary perspectives on the formation of gender and its intersections with other relations of power, such as sexuality, race, class, nationality, religion, and age. Questions are addressed within the context of a transnational world and from perspectives as diverse as history, sociology, literary and cultural studies, postcolonial theory, science, new technology, and art." The UC Berkeley Library also supports research for the Designated Emphasis in Women, Gender and Sexuality (DEWGS) graduate program.
