IRWG supports original, faculty-led programs that invigorate and extend interdisciplinary connections and research agendas around women, gender, or sexuality. Programs provide structure for a focused examination of a particular area or topic related to women and gender. Past programs have taken different forms, most typically a series of public events for a well-established core audience of researchers and or a single event built around a research agenda for publication or performance. IRWG Faculty Programs are usually funded for a two-year period, but some are long-standing. Funding up to $10,000 is available for approved programs.
If you have questions about IRWG’s Faculty Programs, please contact Anna Kirkland, associate director, IRWG, at email@example.com.
Please submit proposals with a narrative of no more than two pages, single-spaced, and a budget with rationale to firstname.lastname@example.org
Faculty and graduate students propose new study groups each year, and some study groups continue from one year to the next. These groups provide a forum for interdisciplinary exchange about a topic, and group participants often plan events or collaborative research projects.
If you are interested in starting a new study group, please contact Anna Kirkland, associate director, IRWG, at email@example.com.
IRWG’s programming reveals how central the intersectional analysis of gender and race is to feminist endeavors on campus. Lane Hall and the institute are evidence of how strongly--and successfully-- the University of Michigan embraces this mission.
