Antioch Women's and Gender Studies in Europe
Women's and Gender Studies in Europe (WGSE) is designed for students interested in exploring women's, gender, queer, and sexuality issues and feminist theory as they earn 16 semester credits while traveling across Europe.
WGSE program participants engage in rigorous methodological and theoretical inquiry as they travel to Utrecht and Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Krakow, Poland; Prague, the Czech Republic; Berlin, Germany; and London, the UK. Each student also conducts a self-designed, independent research project. Each research topic is unique -- past themes include: reproductive rights, LGBTQI issues, trafficking, queer youth support organizations, immigration issues, sex-work, feminist art, and many others.
