HSS 101 - Gender Studies

HSS 101 - Gender Studies

Tuesday, Mar 23, 2021 1:00PM - 2:00PM

Join Drs. Carol Lynne D’Arcangelis and Vicki Hallet for a discussion on how gender shapes our identities, our social interactions and our world.

A late bloomer to academia and motherhood, Dr. Carol Lynne D’Arcangelis still cannot decide which job is harder! She was raised a white settler on Kanyen’kehà:ka (Mohawk) territory in Upstate New York, but cut her feminist teeth years later working for the United Nations in Guatemala with Indigenous (Qʼeqchiʼ) women. She aspires to dance more and play oboe again.

Dr. Vicki Hallet is a trained SCUBA diver and has always loved studying literature, history, cultural studies, current events, politics, and feminism. She considers gender studies to be a place where the current of her interdisciplinary interests meet and thrive, in the same way that cold and warm ocean currents meet, combine and create perfect conditions for life to bloom.

HSS 101

How does archaeology link to contemporary society? What do gender studies and scuba diving have in common? How many times does a book or piece of music lift us from a pit of despair? Maybe even save a life? An education in the humanities and social sciences (HSS) is about what makes us human. In an increasingly complex world, a little humanity goes a long way.

HSS 101 is a four-part series highlighting the humanities and social sciences, featuring engaging, passionate faculty members with an unbounded discipline devotion. Alumni and friends, whether they work in business, science, economics or anything in between, will gain insight on the evolution of human knowledge.

Upcoming events in the series include:

  • April 20 – Folklore featuring Dr. Jillian Gould
  • May 18 – Religious studies featuring Dr. Patricia Dold
