AThe Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program is thrilled to announce the launch of its new digital archive: an online platform featuring student work on gender and sexuality from across disciplines and departments at F&M. It is accepting applications for submissions of the following:
- An informative blog post, video blog (vlog) presentation, or podcast that communicates the key points of an academic paper for a public audience.
- A photo essay that could be inspired by a previously written academic research paper or developed as a stand-alone project.
- Creative writing projects that clearly center around WGSS themes.
- Work in the creative arts, including art, film, theater, dance, and music, that can be effectively shared through digital media and that clearly centers around WGSS themes.
By privileging the above mediums, the program aims to decenter the dominance of written work and make scholarly conversations more accessible. While student submissions must be intellectually rigorous and creative, they do not necessarily have to reproduce the dominant modes of academic writing and discourse. WGSS themes are integral to a number of different academic departments and they are woven throughout numerous courses. It is the WGSS Program's hope that the digital archive will serve as a centralized location to bring these conversations together.
Students wishing to apply to have their projects included in the archive should complete the following form: https://forms.gle/qMwAd7ciSTofvbS97. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis thereafter.
The WGSS Archive is sponsored by the Central Pennsylvania Consortium and will include submissions from all three CPC institutions: F&M, Dickinson College, and Gettysburg College. It can be accessed here.
