Welcome to WGSI

For the past 40 years, WGSI has trained students to think about the entanglements of gender, race and sexuality. Our teaching and research is distinctive for its transnational feminist approach, critically addressing how national borders, colonialisms, labour, and migration shape life, knowledge, and politics.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which the University of Toronto operates. For thousands of years it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

We hope that term is winding down smoothly – despite the whirlwind of assignment submissions, grading and more! We are truly appreciative of all of you who have chosen WGSI as your academic home. WGSI will be resuming all in person classes and tutorials in the Winter term. We hope you have a restful holiday season, and we very much look forward to welcoming you in January 2022.
