The interdisciplinary field of Gender and Women’s Studies concerns itself with understanding and challenging the political and philosophical foundations that shape our cultures, our institutions, and our worlds. Here, we collect a partial bibliography of research from our faculty that addresses some of the contemporary conditions in which we find ourselves – antiblack violence, policing, migration control, racial capitalism and dispossession, surveillance (including medical surveillance), unequal forms for citizenship, and more.
