GSFS Complementary Courses 2017-18

Fall 2017 - Winter 2018

The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) has consolidated the previous Women’s Studies and Sexual Diversity Studies programs into one, newly entitled program in Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies (GSFS). The Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies program recognizes social justice as a driving concept inherent to the study of gender, sexuality, and feminism. Social Justice frameworks incorporate critical race studies, disability studies, and Indigenous studies into the examination of gender, sexuality, and feminism. 

The courses below significantly engage with at least two of these issues and are offered by a range of faculties and disciplines. Clicking on the title of each course will reveal information from the McGill University e-calendar, including a short description, the term offered, and the name of the professor or lecturer. Please see the note at the bottom of the page for more information on complementary courses.
