Gender Studies Group

Gender Studies Group

We would like to invite you to join the DSU Gender Studies Group.  The group began in 2007 and operates on the premise that a multi-disciplinary group of faculty, students and community members with diverse experiences and qualifications can make a difference at DSU and in the Mississippi Delta by dissecting and understanding gender issues.  In general, the group collects and analyzes data to explain current social, political, and economic problems faced by men and women. The group disseminates information, generates awareness, facilitates community engagement, and aims to influence public policy.  Our primary strategy for doing so is to bring together disparate groups interested in gender studies to collaborate on planning events.

GSG Brown Bag Series

The GSG sponsors a regular series of Friday Noon-time Brown Bag lectures.  Presenters and participants usually consist of students, staff, and faculty members from across the DSU campus and the wider Cleveland community.  These talks cover a variety of topics dealing with an equally varied group of gender-related issues.
