Position Type Faculty
Description of Work Unit
The Ethnic Studies Department critically examines the interlocking forces of
domination that are rooted in socially constructed categories of gender,
sexuality, class, and race. Our faculty and researchers are committed to
theoretical, empirical, qualitative, textual, and community-based research,
pedagogy, service, and outreach. Utilizing interdisciplinary, trans
international, and comparative approaches, we challenge paradigms that
systematically marginalize the experiences of diverse populations. In doing
so, we bring to bear issues of power, privilege, and social justice pertinent
to aggrieved groups in the United States and abroad. We are especially
committed to nurturing civic-minded and culturally informed students who
strive to strengthen the communities in which they reside. In support of the
land-grant mission of Colorado State University, the Department engages with
communities on and off campus in order to effect meaningful change in public
policy and social life.

The Center for Women's Studies and Gender Research (CWSGR) is an
interdisciplinary apex of research, academic, teaching, and outreach program
housed within the Department of Ethnic Studies. The program examines the
positions of women and the organization of gendered relations in culture and
society from both intellectual and activist perspectives. Central to our
consideration of women and gender is a commitment to investigating the
intersections of class, race, ethnicity, sexual identities, queer identities,
gender non-conforming identities, age, ability, citizenship, empire, nation,
and national origin along the social structures and power continuums of power,
privilege, and difference. Guided by the wide spectrum of feminist and other
critical or gendered perspectives, our program aims to heighten awareness and
understanding of the range of human experience, potential, and accomplishment
in order to advance the goals of social justice. In the course of meeting
these objectives, we seek to nurture and disseminate knowledge about women and
gender that is 1) historically-informed, 2) grounded at every level of life
experience, including interpersonal, household, workplace, and state arenas,
3) focused on marginalized and privileged populations, and 4) dedicated to
