About the WSRC

Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center (WSRC) is an innovative, interdisciplinary research facility of scholars, artists, students, and faculty who study gender issues and women’s lives. Advancing the social justice mission of Brandeis University, the WSRC contributes intellectually to the university as well as to national and international communities.

Brandeis WSRC is headed by Professor of Sociology and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Karen V. Hansen, and is the home of:

The Scholars Program, a program comprised of 70 scholars studying gender issues in an interdisciplinary environment.

The Student-Scholar Partnership Program, which pairs Brandeis University undergraduate students with WSRC scholars for semester-long research assistantships.

The Arts Program, which oversees the Kniznick Gallery, devoted to the artwork by or about women, and the permanent art collection as well as scholarly art projects at the WSRC.

Throughout the year, members of Brandeis WSRC Scholars Program present their work through events such as receptions, book launches, and film screenings and in lectures, panels, performances and concerts that are open to the public. 

Founded by Professor of Sociology Shulamit Reinharz in November 2001, the Brandeis Women’s Studies Research Center celebrated its 10 Year Anniversary in 2012. Please view our Anniversary Celebration video created by WSRC Scholar Ornit Barkai
