Brandeis WSRC operates on principles of interdisciplinary exchange and discovery through three core programs: The Scholars Program, The Student Scholar Partnership Program and the Arts Program.

Be sure to check out our Affiliated Programs such as C-Change, a program that engages medical schools and academic health centers in action research promoting culture change, and On Equal Terms, a site-specific, mixed-media installation that brings viewers into the experiences of women who work in construction and skilled trades.

Coming Up in the Kniznick Gallery: Root Shock | Exhibition will be on Display July 15 - October 10, 2019

The Kniznick Gallery presents a WSRC / Cascading exhibition: Root Shock | Hannah Chalew, Daniela Rivera, and Corinne Spencer. The exhibition is in dialogue with research taking place at the Women’s Studies Research Center examining the concept of Cascading, or a downward spiral in women’s lives caused by the convergence of economic, environmental, and political forces. Through drawing, video, and installation, Root Shock examines three women’s responses to intersecting global challenges. Material and location become synonymous as the artists explore the literal and emotional elements that surround them.
