We are pleased to announce a series of programs this year - #Brandeis#TheDialogues - focused on navigating gender and race at work. Check out the website for these interactive workshops, round tables and panels that grew out of a year of conversation between students, staff and faculty. They focus on educating and connecting all of us around these important issues and feature many members of the Brandeis community.
Please join us for Conversations with Extraordinary Women, a new webinar series sponsored by WGS in collaboration with the Rabb School, Brandeis University.
Conversations with Extraordinary Women

This installment features a conversation between Enid and Nate Ancell Professor of Physics, Bulbul Chakraborty and Priyamvada Natarajan, Yale University, a theoretical astrophysicist interested in cosmology, gravitational lensing and black hole physics. Her research involves mapping the detailed distribution of dark matter in the universe, exploiting the bending of light en-route to us from distant galaxies. In particular, she has focused on making dark matter maps of clusters of galaxies, the largest known repositories of dark matter.

Welcome to the website of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program (WGS) at Brandeis. We are a community of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and Board members from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Together we ask questions about intersectional aspects of women, gender and sexuality in classes, lectures and a range of public events.
We offer an undergraduate major and minor in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and help to support the undergraduate minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies (SQS). We also offer a standalone MA in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies and 10 joint MA programs in which graduate students focus on WGS and another discipline. We collaborate with a range of groups on campus and are generously supported by our National Board.
