"The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Brandeis has provided me with an enriching group of colleagues whose scholarship inspires me.  My work is interdisciplinary at its core and WGS has been my academic home.  This is a set of colleagues, students, and staff who believe in the value of laughter, food, and a welcoming environment for all."
