The Program for the Study of Sexuality, Gender, Health and Human Rights at Columbia University
invites applications for participation in the Program's

Fall 2002 Advanced Graduate Seminar

(Course # P8709, "Seminar in Sexuality, Gender, Health, and Human Rights", Monday 4-6 pm)

The Program for the Study of Sexuality, Gender, Health and Human Rights invites applications from graduate students for its semester-long weekly seminar. The seminar is held as part of a residential fellowship program to which scholars, advocates, and activists have been invited to conduct innovative interdisciplinary work on the intersecting themes of sexuality, gender, health and human rights in U.S. and international contexts.

The seminar offers opportunities for graduate students, fellows and faculty to explore and further the sometimes separate conversations that have occurred within studies of sexuality, gender, health, and human rights. Despite new efforts to integrate human rights frameworks into feminist agendas and to frame health as a human right, the relationship of innovative scholarship and activism about sexuality to health and human rights remains to be explored. The seminar attempts to address the somewhat disparate nature of these discourses by framing the issues in terms of activism, advocacy, and theory. Our focus is on examining and expanding traditional definitions and boundaries, while acknowledging conditions of inequality, marginality, and post-coloniality.

Applicants from all disciplines with interests and/or projects related to the seminar theme are welcome to apply. Graduate students who have an interest in participating in the seminar should send an application (see the other side of this flyer) via fax, post, or e-mail. Applications must be submitted by September 06, 2002 at the latest. Participants receive 3.0 credits for the seminar. If you have questions, call Professor Carole S. Vance at 212 305 1535.
