A tri-campus trans studies research cluster that brings together cross-disciplinary scholars, artists, and leaders in conversation around the intersections between critical trans studies and trans knowledge production both inside and outside of the academy.
Our holistic study of textiles includes the cultural and theoretical implications of textile crafts and objects, studies in aesthetics, adornment, and materiality, gendered labor, linguistic and literary poetics, among others.
This colloquium advances crucial conversations on world language and literature through an interdisciplinary speaker series focused on issues of race, identity, colonialism, and migration within a broad European context.
By focusing on the art versus craft divide, this group recognizes inequities and then identifies and implements solutions for artists, activists, curators, educators, and researchers in their respective practices.
The Gender and Sexuality Graduate Research Cluster supports UW graduate students in a range of inquiry into gender and sexuality as social structures shaping institutions, interactions, and identities.
The group has met on campus for more than thirteen years and currently hosts events that reach both academic and non-academic audiences, fosters collaboration and camaraderie among students, and promotes connections between students and faculty.
The purpose of this seminar is to provide faculty with a structured setting to reflect, talk about what experiences may be available in retirement, and explore the steps needed to ensure those experiences will be positive.
This symposium will initiate the development of “the Sound Collaboratory,” a research project that will bring together faculty and students to create new creative partnerships on and off campus. The Sound Practices Symposium will convene established scholars as well as UW graduate students to share their insights on the innovative methods and practices they utilize to incorporate sound into their scholarship.
The activities specific to this research cluster entail three events over the course of the 2022-2023 academic year. Each quarter, a scholar will be invited to virtually present on a topic that relates to autoethnography. This method seeks to counter the biased pitfalls of an ostensibly objective researcher in ethnography by making them a central component of the research study.
