About the Program

The University of Pittsburgh Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program is committed to promoting feminist and LGBTQIA activism, pedagogy, and scholarship that engage with the larger local, national, and global communities. Program offerings provide opportunities for students and faculty to explore the historical development, cultural variations, and changing representations of gender and sexuality as they organize identities, interactions, and institutions and intersect in complex ways with sex, race, class, ethnicity, ability, age, religion, and nation.

New Spring Course: Sexual Revolutions

"Sexual Revolutions" with Professor Rostom Mesli
Tuesdays/Thursdays 11:00 - 12:15 PM
402 Cathedral of Learning 

What is a sexual revolution? What does it mean to say that some sexual practices are revolutionary? Does it imply that others are reactionary? Who decides and according to what criteria? Why link sex and politics? What new problems might this create?
