Overview and metadata sections

Princeton University. Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies.

Princeton University's Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies was founded in 1981 as the Program in Women's Studies. The program is interdepartmentally run and offers an area of concentration that supplements the undergraduate or graduate major. Students must complete five courses in women's studies and choose a senior thesis topic that incorporates issues related to women's studies. The program also publishes CRITICAL MATRIX, a journal of women's studies authored by graduate students and printed twice annually.

The collection consists of articles related to women's issues from the Daily Princetonian and other local publications, as well as clippings on other subjects such as University investments in South Africa. Also in the collection are promotional brochures about the program itself, programs from women's studies conferences, bibliographies on research topics, and the public website of the program.
