Museum is a unique, creative research project that reflects
a central tenet of TWU’s College of Arts and Sciences
mission — educating global citizens,” Dr. Jillian
M. Duquaine-Watson, assistant professor of women’s studies,
The exhibit is
a culmination of the work of students taking Dr. Duquaine-Watson’s
“Women: Images and Perspectives” class. Students
worked together in small groups to research a particular country
in order to better understand how gender, race, class and
sexuality influence the lives of people in various countries
throughout the world.
said, “Through this project, students learn not only
about the differences between their own experiences and those
of populations throughout the world, but also the similarities.
And this understanding of the ways in which our lives are
interconnected, is a fundamental step that can help us move
toward creative, effective solutions to the problems facing
our global community.”
