Join us at WAM!
At our annual conference, now in its third year, progressive journalists,
authors, activists, bloggers, students, and fed-up TV-viewers come
together. Here, we share skills, trade information, exchange strategies,
and inform and inspire one another.
Together, we'll make noise and make change.
The Center for New Words
is committed to a simple mission: use the power and creativity of words
to strengthen the voice of progressive and marginalized women in society.
To accomplish this mission, our programs support diverse women's engagement
with the entire “"word cycle,"“ from literacy
to blogging to literary writing to opinion-making in the media and other
domains of influence. Built on the wisdom, commitments, and competencies
of 28 years of running New Words Bookstore, CNW is creating spaces and
places where women's words matter. Contact CNW at 617-876-5310 or email@example.com,
or visit us on the web at www.centerfornewwords.org.
Program in Women's Studies. Exploring gender with the
tools of different, and often multiple, disciplines, Women's Studies
subjects strive to help MIT students better understand how knowledge
and value take different forms depending on a variety of social variables.
In the course of their inquiry, students not only learn how to use gender
as a category of analysis, but also reflect on the manifestation of
gender in their own lives, leading to a range of personal and intellectual
discoveries. Although gender is a central component of every subject,
the study of gender requires attention to connections between gender,
sexuality, race, class, religion, nationality, and other social categories;
different subjects shed light on different aspects of such connections.
