Feminist Scholarship is interested in exploring the relationship of gender and communication, both mediated and non-mediated, within a context of feminist theories, methodologies, and practices.
The Division explores issues such as feminist teaching; international commonalities and differences by race, class and gender; women's alternative media; and feminist cultural studies. Members support and encourage feminist scholarship in other divisions, and work with the Committee on the Status of Women to link scholarship to issues concerning women professionals.
