TWU students present ‘Global Perspectives on Gender: A Student Research Museum’

11/27/06



DENTON — Women’s studies students Texas Woman’s University will present the exhibit “Global Perspectives on Gender: A Student Research Museum” from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nov. 29 to Dec. 1 in the first and second floor lobbies of the Classroom Faculty Office (CFO) Building on TWU’s Denton campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, call (940) 898-2112.

“The Gender 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, said.

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.

Dr. Duquaine-Watson 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.”
